Arts and Heritage APPG

First Registered: 30/07/2015 • Last updated on: 04/05/2022

Since 1974 the APPG has built up a close relationship with all our national museums and galleries, The Arts Council, English Heritage, The National Trust and with other leading arts and heritage bodies. We hold regular meetings with their leaders and with ministers. We arrange numerous visits and also have the privilege of attending private views of most of the major exhibitions in London.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.

APPG Supplied Content

APPGs can register with Parallel Parliament and submit files and articles to be placed here.

Parallel Parliament offers the facility for APPGs to submit written content and files, which are made available through this page.

Submitters can draft and edit publications, and either release them on demand, or schedule release for a future date.

Both text content and attached files submitted through this facility is indexed by our website, and made available through both the search function and relevant e-mail alerts. Any of our users registered for an alert which matches your content, will receive a link making them aware of its publication.
