Celebrate London History Schools Day
What is it?
Launched by Historic England, the first ever London History Day was held on Wednesday 31 May 2017. This day gives us a chance to celebrate our city’s unique history and heritage: its historic buildings, sites, communities and heroes. The aim is for this to become an annual event for Londoners.
London History Schools Day 2018
This year's London History Schools Day is on Friday 25 May 2018 and will be bigger and better than last year, with even more schools celebrating our city's unique history and heritage.
The spotlight will be firmly on Londoners who played a role in women’s suffrage. It’s part of the Mayor’s wider #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign to celebrate the centenary of the first UK women winning the right to vote.
