A limited number of schools from around the county are invited to send 10 people to the event at Westminster Abbey, held on Commonwealth Day.

It is the largest annual multi-faith celebration in the UK and aims to celebrate the unity, diversity and linkages of the modern Commonwealth and foster greater understanding of the Commonwealth’s achievements and role, particularly among young people.
