Parliament’s annual recruitment fair will take place on Thursday 19 April in Westminster Hall from 3pm – 7pm.

As spaces are limited, tickets must be booked in advance. Please contact Visit Parliament by email or call 020 7219 4114. Pass holders do not need a ticket.

There will be stalls from departments across both Houses. If you have volunteered to act as a departmental representative, a short meeting will be scheduled nearer to the time to run through any final questions.

Parliament Choir

Do you enjoy singing but feel you don’t have time?

Did you know there is a choir at Westminster?

We meet for 2 hours every Monday evening in the Chapel Undercroft, so it is the perfect way to relax after a hard day’s work.  We are a very friendly group of all ages made up of House staff, Parliamentary staff, MPs and Peers.  But rank and position are left at the door.  All that matters is a love of choral singing.

We usually put on two or three concerts each year at venues close to the House.  We work closely with the wonderful Southbank Sinfonia which is made up of a constantly changing group of exciting young professional musicians.  We even have an annual trip to a music festival in Tuscany.  What is not to like?!

We welcome all pass-holders and it is fine to come for a few weeks to see if you enjoy it before joining formally.  So come and find us.  Or make contact with our Secretary, Diana Thompson, at
