UK Parliament Week begins for 2018

Today marks the start of UK Parliament Week, the annual festival aiming to engage people from across the UK with Parliament.

The festival, developed by the Houses of Parliament as part of its Education and Engagement Service aims to explore how history has shaped democracy in the UK and to empower people to get involved. 2018 marks 100 years since women first received the vote in the UK.

The week, from the 12 to 18 November, is expected to see nearly 8,000 events run for the festival.
