UK Parliament Week is an annual festival that engages people from across the UK with Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.
UK Parliament Week 2018
Across the country between the 12 and 18 November, people will be celebrating and learning about the UK Parliament. This year the School of Social Sciences’ Politics and International Relations department, alongside Nottingham Civic Exchange are joining them. Throughout the week we’ll be hosting a series of events and activities to showcase the value of engagement with politics for our students and the public.
Throughout the week we have opportunities for students and members of the public to work with NTU’s academics and partners. If you aren’t a student we’d still like you to come along to NTU and get involved. Check out the event listings below to see what you can get involved in over the week.
