Attend the Commonwealth Day Observance & Tea Party
Attendance at the Observance is strictly by invitation only. Demand for seats is always high and we try our best to make sure as many people as possible can attend. If you, or your school, would like to be considered for a place at the Observance, please send an email to email@example.com .
After the Observance, there will be a tea party at the Commonwealth Club, home of the Royal Commonwealth Society (25 Northumberland Avenue, WC2N 5AP). For more details and to book tickets visit www.thercs.org/events
Find out more about our Youth Programmes
Commonwealth Day is a centre piece of the Commonwealth calendar, but young people can engage with the Commonwealth all year around. The RCS runs a number of youth programmes.
Our Young Commonwealth Competitions enable young people to engage with international current affairs through writing, film and photography.
Through our Commonwealth Youth Summits schoolchildren across the UK can play the roles of leaders, foreign ministers and media teams, as they learn about global issues such as poverty, education and health. An accessible range of educational resources, available for free download, accompany this project.
Our Nkabom Commonwealth Youth Leadership Programme offers a ground-breaking crash-course in peace-building and conflict resolution for 18-25 year olds from around the world.
