Photos from Jill Burlingham of the Magna Carta Pageant

At our last Film Evening in Bury St Edmunds, we were delighted to meet Jill Burlingham, who was Christopher Ede's assistant during the 1959 pageant of Magna Carta. Jill very kindly gave us a series of photos from the event - some of which we had seen, but many we had not - and none in such high quality! You can see them below.
