Every June since 2008, people from across the UK have celebrated Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month (GRTHM).

Through celebration, education and raising awareness, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month helps to tackle prejudice, change the story, and amplify the voices of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers in wider society.
