UK Parliament Week, which runs from 14-20 November, is an annual festival of events and activities that connects and engages people from across the UK with Parliament and democracy.

With over 250 events and activities, UK Parliament Week has something for everyone: whether you want to join a discussion, join a local walk, find out how you can make your voice heard or simply take part in the conversation online.

How can I get involved?

It’s easy to take part in UK Parliament Week. You can attend one of the events in our programme, organised by partners from across the UK. There are debates and other activities happening online. You can also keep up-to-date with the latest news and information by following our hashtag #UKPW16.

Why should I get involved?

UK Parliament Week is about connecting people with democracy and encouraging people to make their voices heard. It’s about highlighting the role of Parliament in people’s lives, no matter where you live in the UK.

Working in partnership with the Electoral Commission to encourage people to register to vote, vote or stand for election is an important part of this.  You can find out more on Parliament’s Get Involved pages.

In addition to voting, there are many ways that you can get involved with Parliament.  You can contact your MP or a member of the House of Lords, create or sign an e-petition about an issue that matters to you or contribute to a select committee enquiry. You can also come to Parliament to hear the issues being discussed by the House of Commons or the House of Lords.
