Where

This year's annual conference will take place from in the beautiful town of Stroud in Gloucestershire, where Greens sit on the County Council, control the Town Council and are part of the ruling Administration of the District Council, along with Labour and Lib Dem colleagues. Accessible by train on the main line from London to Cheltenham, the event will take place in the centre of town, adjacent to the station, and a few minutes' walk from the famous Saturday Farmers' Market and numerous quirky independent shops where you may wish to browse in your lunch breaks.

The Programme

Starting with a wonderful meal in the Curio Lounge on Friday night, the main event will take place in the Imperial Hotel, an old coaching inn with conference rooms, a comfy bar and outside tables where we can spread out if we need to. The programme will include workshops, presentations and discusssions where Green Councillors can share their ideas, achievements and tips as well as the Annual General Meeting and plenty of time to network with colleagues and to be inspired and supported by them. Local Party members will host a social at Atelier on Saturday night and the weekend will finish by 2.30pm on Sunday.

More details will be available nearer the time.
