Celebrating 150 Years of the Palace of Westminster

Maidenhead MP Theresa May encourages Maidenhead’s children to celebrate 150 years of the Palace of Westminster by taking part in the House of Commons Speaker’s art competition.

The art competition is called ‘My Democracy Design’ and is open to young people aged between 6 and 15. You can find out more by going to the below link:

Theresa would like to see as many Maidenhead children as possible enter the competition which will see the winning design created into a unique democracy-themed tile. The deadline for entries is 31 August 2020.

Theresa said: “This year we are celebrating 150 years of the Palace of Westminster. The United Kingdom has proud democratic traditions and the Palace of Westminster is at the heart of our politics and democracy.  

I know from my annual Christmas card competition run by the Advertiser how many good young artists there are in Maidenhead so I hope many of you will enter the competition.

This competition is a fantastic opportunity to engage the next generation in the important history of Parliament and politics
