Parliament Week is a programme of events and activities that inspire, engage and connect people from across the UK with parliamentary democracy.
Our Partners are organisations who take part in Parliament Week by organising and
promoting an event or activity about democracy in the UK. In 2013, Parliament Week had
over 230 partners who contributed to our programme of events and activities with
workshops, debates, exhibitions, walks and talks.
