We, Our Voice is planning a visit to Parliament during 2018, would you like to meet a couple of our local MPs on a working day in Westminster?
As we are in the process of arranging this tour of the Houses of Parliament including the Commons and Lords Chambers and historic Westminster Hall with our local MP(s), we need you to express an interest allowing us to give numbers to Parliament to then narrow down a suitable day for us to attend.
As a visitor you can watch debates and committee hearings taking place in the House of Commons and House of Lords on that day.
The Parliamentary Archives, which hold millions of records from both Houses and other historical material, are open to everyone by appointment for research purposes, this needs planning in advance.
**Although the ticket at present states 'free' event, this is the expression of interest point. We will then gain group numbers, allowing us to arrange a suitable date with Parliament, which then leads us on to the costing of travel depending on the size of the final group. It may be the date or cost of the visit may not be suitable once finalised, at this point you are just expressing an interest.
Our plan for the day as we arrange a tour through our MP
What does the tour cover?
An expert guide will accompany you on this 75 minute tour that recounts the history of the Palace of Westminster and describes how the business and traditions of both Houses contribute to the day to day workings of the UK Parliament.
When the Houses are sitting, the full tour route may not always be available and can be subject to last minute changes or cancellation due to parliamentary business.
Demand is high for these tours, we started conversations some time ago with our local MPs and aware many of you are wanting to take up this opportunity.
Democratic access tours sponsored by a Member of Parliament (MP) or a Member of the House of Lords are available to UK residents, free of charge. However we have to make arrangement for our travel.
To reiterate, at this moment in time we need numbers to go back to Parliament to make further arrangements of the date, hoping for a 2018 visit. We have requested to sit on a relevant debate or Select Committee although as the planning required in advance it is difficult with arrangements for such debates.
Do register here if want to travel to London with 'Our Voice' to discover how the UK's decisions are made and more about our countries history? We looking forward to hearing from you.
We will forward further information as we get these from our MP.
If you have any travel or dietary requirements please highlight them on booking so we can check Rail and Parliament can accomodate. Thank you
We will be in touch with additional booking & payment details in due course as we work with Parliament as they plan the day for us.
