Europe Day in The UK
Welcome to the portal for the UK's celebration of Europe Day, an annual event celebrating the peace and unity of EU countries.
In 2017, several local groups came together to host events marking Europe Day around the country. In 2018, the initiative has been adopted on a national level by a number of key partners and we have created this portal as a way to promote it.
Let's make the week of May 9th the biggest network of Europe Day celebrations that has ever been seen in the UK.

We are pleased to announce that the theme for this year will be surrounding the 70th anniversary of the Congress of The Hague, which was the first post-war iniative for European integration. Stay tuned for further details about how this will integrate into the initiative.
We are also pleased to announce that European Movement UK have come on board as supporters of the iniative.
