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.

We've put together a calendar of some of the significant historical anniversaries coming up over the next 12 months from October 2019 to September 2020, as well as the regular themed months such as Black History Month and LGBT History Month, plus major national days and seasonal events. 

You can download the calendar as a Word document or Excel spreadsheet via the links below. There are also links to articles about how to use anniversaries in your teaching or in a school assembly. You may like to further customise your calendar to include events relevant to your school and locality.
