BAD KING JOHN ON A BIKE: 800TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SIGNING OF THE MAGNA CARTA
Biketart joined in the 800th Anniversary celebrations of the signing of the Magna Carta with a fun new window illustration at the Canterbury City Store by local artist Lesley Lindsay-Watson.
The window depicts Bad King John on a bike with the nursery rhyme from AA Milne.
Lesley said “I remember the tale of King John’s Christmas from when I was a child, and that sparked my imagination. There’s a great image of Bad King John riding a horse on the seal of the Magna Carta – but we thought it would be fun to put him on a bike.”
A replica of Magna Carta has been carried through the streets of Canterbury this weekend in celebration of the signing at Runnymede in 1215.
