Resources

Your UK Parliament Week Kit

We have plenty of ideas and resources to help you with your event this year! How you take part in UK Parliament Week is entirely up to you, there is no limit to what you can do.

This year we’ve created a kit specifically for partners. Your kit is designed to cater to all your UK Parliament Week needs as you go on to hold your event or activity.

What’s in the box?

  • A booklet tailored to your needs, with a wide range of ideas for your audiences to take part in.
  • Bunting – so you can decorate your venue in true UK Parliament Week style.
  • UK Parliament Week branded pens and a highlighter.
  • A UK Parliament Week stress reliever (for all your efforts).
  • Posters to help you promote your event.
  • UK Parliament Week stickers, the perfect giveaway.
  • UK Parliament Week pin badges for you to wear so everyone knows you’re taking part.
  • Your very own UK Parliament Week placard – take pictures with your placard whilst your event is in action!
  • And last but not least – our new UK Parliament Week ballot box so you can hold a mock voting activity for all ages.

Ideas, planning and publicity:

We’ve also created a downloadable version of our toolkit to help you come up with ideas, plan and publicise your UK Parliament Week event.

UK Parliament Week Quiz

We also have a UK Parliament Week Quiz that you can download and use for your UK Parliament Week event.

Quiz your class or youth group on their knowledge of Parliament. You can even ask your local pub to host its own Parliament themed quiz night.

Who’s your MP?

Your local MP can offer excellent insight into the work of Parliament. You can invite your local MP to hold an assembly about their role and how your audience can engage with their work. Find out who your local MP is and how to contact them.

Invite a Peer to your event

Why not invite a Member of the House of Lords to talk about their work as part of your event? Here’s a list of members, their details, and how you can contact them.

If you’re holding an event for a Girlguiding unit, a primary, or secondary school, your kit is packed with plenty of fun event ideas and interactive activities for all age groups.
