Parliament Week 19th - 25th November

ECA sponsored exhibition in Leicester


Through our active membership of Democracy Matters, the ECA is supporting Parliament Week.


Parliament Week is an annual, national awareness week, co-ordinated by the House of Commons and the House of Lords. The Week raises awareness and understanding of the UK’s parliamentary democracy, encouraging active participation from people across the country. It runs from 19th – 25th November 2012 and provides a great opportunity to find out more about your parliamentary democracy and how you can take part in it. For more information about Parliament Week, go to our website at www.parliamentweek.org.


For 2012's Parliament Week, the ECA has sponsored a local exhibition in the Leicester Peoples Photographic Gallery (2 Wellington Street, Leicester) to run from the 19th – 25th November. This exhibition showcases photographs taken to illustrate the national themes of Parliament Week and features the work of local Leicestershire photographers.


There will be a special invitation event on Friday 23rd November with invited guests at the Gallery, including local MPs and members of the House of Lords along with representatives of all the private and public sector sponsors of the Gallery, including the Leicester Mercury, John E Wright, the Slug and Lettuce and Leicester City Council.


The ECA is grateful to John E Wright for sponsoring the printing of the invitations and to the Slug and Lettuce for providing the light refreshments. We also offer our thanks and congratulations to the photographers whose work will be on display.
