Historical anniversaries calendar

Calendar of historical anniversaries and significant dates 2021-2022

Historical anniversaries can be a great way to get children and young people interested in a subject or to raise awareness about a particular issue.

This resource is free to everyone. For access to hundreds of other high-quality history and education resources along with free or discounted CPD and membership of a thriving community of teachers and subject leaders, join the Historical Association today

This calendar puts together just a selection of the key historical anniversaries coming up over the next 12 months to get you started, as well as the regular themed months, plus major national days and seasonal events. The list is by no means exhaustive, simply a starting point. You may find it useful to develop and customise your calendar to include events relevant to your own locality and interests, or if you are in a school, to significant individuals and topics you study.

You can download the calendar as an Excel spreadsheet or Word document via the links below. There are also links to articles about how to use anniversaries in your teaching or in a school assembly.
