What is UK Parliament Week?

A programme of events and activities that connects people with the UK Parliament and democracy.

There is something for everyone: whether you attend or organise an event or simply take part in the conversation online using the hashtag #UKPW16.

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