The first annual Parliament Week, a new national initiative, is taking place between 31 October and 6 November 2011.
Parliament Week is a series of events and activities which aim to raise awareness of Parliament and encourage people to engage with the UK’s democratic system and its institutions. This year’s theme is Stories of Democracy, which is about finding out the stories of those who have participated in or contributed to democracy in the UK, both past and present.
One of the most inspiring events of the week will be the sitting of the UK Youth Parliament in the House of Commons Chamber on Friday 4 November, which for the first time will be screened live by BBC Parliament. For up to date events please visit www.parliamentweek.org
