This is a calendar of the awareness days and weeks in Britain. Not
everyone in Britain will take part in all of these events. The
calendar is useful for teachers planning assemblies or other people
planning events on a theme. See also our month by month calendar for main celebrations in the UK
This calendar is a good starting point point for interesting ideas for assemblies as well as using our Religious Festivals Calendar.
The main summer holiday is from mid-July to early September. Children also have two weeks holiday at Christmas and at Easter, plus a week in mid-October and in mid-February. Exact dates vary between each education authority.
