Open Lectures are a series of free events taking a more in-depth look at Parliament and designed to build on people’s knowledge of how Parliament works.
These lectures are part of a new package of services tailored for university staff and students but are open to anyone to attend. The lectures are made available by the Houses of Parliament’s Outreach Service, which seeks to spread awareness of the processes and relevance of the institution of Parliament.
The lectures will be delivered at Westminster by senior figures from within Parliament, covering a wide variety of subjects about Parliament and its work.
Spaces at each Open Lecture are allocated on a first come first serve basis, so booking in advance is essential.
