Event description

Description

The Houses of Parliament Outreach and Engagement Service holds free sessions for anyone who wants to find out more about how the UK Parliament works, and how to get involved.

Parliament makes law, debates the issues of the day, and checks and challenges the work of Government. Parliament affects everyone you know and everything you care about. If you would like to know more about how it works, all you have to do is book a place.

The sessions are open to anyone who wants to learn more about the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

The sessions can cover:

• what Parliament is and does
• the role of an MP
• the difference between Parliament and Government
• how a law is made
• how you can get involved with the work of Parliament, and
• we will try to answer any questions you may have about Parliament, so come prepared!

This session also features a special screening of three Your Story, Our History films, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act in 1967 which decriminalised homosexuality and transformed the lives of people in the LGBTQ+ community.

These sessions are part of a wider programme that aims to spread awareness of the processes and relevance of the institution of Parliament.

There are limited places at this event and places are available on a first come first served basis. If a waiting list is formed then this will be distributed on a first come, first served basis, places are non-transferable.
