Historical anniversaries calendar

Calendar of historical anniversaries and significant dates 2020-21

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 12-18 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 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.
