13 – 19 November 2017



UK Parliament Week is an annual festival that engages people from across the UK with Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.

There is something for everyone: whether you attend or organise an event. You can also take part in the online conversation using the hashtag #UKPW17

Organisations across the UK run events and activities throughout UK Parliament Week which explore what the UK Parliament means to them and their community.

Your event or activity can be as big or as small as you like! It can be aimed at the public, or it can be a private event aimed specifically at your staff or service users.
