Supporters of another EU referendum are due to march through central London later.
Meanwhile, an online petition calling for the UK to remain in the EU has attracted a record number of signatures.
By 11:32 GMT, the total number of signatures calling for Article 50 to be revoked stood at 4,151,815 – beating the previous record reached by another Brexit-related petition in 2016.
If Mrs May’s deal is approved by MPs next week, the EU has agreed to extend the Brexit deadline until 22 May. If it is not – and no alternative plan is put forward – the UK is set to leave the EU on 12 April.
In a letter to all MPs on Friday evening, Mrs May offered to talk to MPs over the coming days “as Parliament prepares to take momentous decisions”.

He said all the other alternatives would require MPs asking for a much longer extension, which Mrs May has said she is not prepared for.
Indicating he would stand down if Mrs May’s deal is not voted for, Mr Zahawi said he “cannot justify” going to his constituents and saying:
“We failed to deliver this and that now we are having to stay in the EU and go into European elections.”
Mrs May also confirmed in her letter that the government would change the law to officially change the UK’s departure date from the EU next week.
