This summer we’re celebrating 150 years of the Houses of Parliament! It took nearly 30 years to rebuild the Palace of Westminster after a devastating fire, but in 1870 it was finally completed with the beautiful mosaic tiles in Central Lobby.
To help us celebrate, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons is calling on budding young artists to take part in an exciting summer art competition to design their own democracy themed tile!
You must be aged between 6 and 15 on the 31 August 2020 to take part.
Your design must focus on the theme ‘My Democracy Design’ and should be all your own work. You could focus your design around the theme of voting, famous moments in the history of Parliament, like the suffragettes or on what you would like your democracy to look like in the next 150 years.
The only limit is your imagination!
