We’re excited to see that Salisbury has been decorated with 25 life-sized decorated medieval barons, to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta and helping to raise funds for The Trussell Trust.
The Barons’ Charter has been organised by The Trussell Trust and Wild in Art, displaying the biggest mass participation public art event the city has ever seen.
The trail runs for 12 weeks this summer, from 12th June to 6th September before the sculptures are auctioned in October to raise money for The Trussell Trust.
Jenny Marshall, Project Coordinater of The Barons’ Charter explained:
“I’m absolutely delighted, the work and the craftmanship that goes into the statues is absolutely amazing. The Magna Carta celebrations are going to be fantastic and our Barons Trail is simply going to add to the tourist, visitor and local experience. It’s a win win really for the community, traders, everybody.”
