What is UK Parliament Week?
UK Parliament Week is an annual festival that engages people from across the UK with their UK Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.
It starts with you!
Last year over 1.2 million people took part in UK Parliament Week, in every nation and region of the UK, and countries all over the world.
Whether it’s your first time or you’re signing up again, by taking part you’ll join a UK-wide conversation about our democracy, people power and making change happen.
What’s in it for me?
When you sign up, we’ll post you a free kit packed with goodies including an activity booklet, bunting, a ballot box, stickers, and more.
You can pick and choose from the options in the booklet to tailor your UK Parliament Week activity to suit you and your organisation, whatever time you have available and age groups you’re working with.
Plan ahead or just open your kit and go! It’s that simple and flexible!
Need some inspiration?

- Q&A sessions, quizzes and lively debates
- creating petitions and campaigning for change
- making videos and posting online
- debating issues and holding votes
- themed assemblies and school council elections
- baking, crafting and colouring
- visits from MPs, Members of the House of Lords, local councillors or mayors, MSs, MLAs and MSPs
