Description

Proudly presented by Lewes Constituency Labour Party.

A day to explore ideas that can rebuild Britain as a society radically fairer than the one we have now.

Keynote speakers

Christine Berry co-author of People Get Ready! Preparing for a Corbyn Government a book which explains how to bring about transformative change in the face of an establishment hostile to any significant redistribution of wealth and power.

Danny Dorling widely recognised as one of the foremost contributors to our understanding of inequality. Danny's new book, with Sally Tomlinson, Rule Britannia : Brexit and the End of Empire is a bold call to leave behind the binary opposition of Leave v Remain to build a more equal Britain.

Grace Blakeley research fellow at the Institute for Public Policy Forum and a member of the Labour Party’s National Policy Forum. Grace has recently been appointed by the News Statesman as their economics commentator. Her first book, Stolen: How Finance Destroyed the Economy and Corrupted Politics, is published by Repeater in September 2019,

Paul Mason an award-winning writer, playwright and film-maker, i his new book Clear Bright Future : A Radical Defence of the Human Being Paul offers a vision of humans as more than puppets, customers or cogs in a machine. This work of political optimism asks: Do we want to be controlled? Or do we want something better?

Our mission for the day is nothing less than to locate a politics with which Labour will not only win the next General Election but also shape an era of sharing the wealth of our society with us all.

Everybody is welcome. Expect during the course of the day to feast yourself on thinking, sharing and conversing with others from across Sussex and all points yonder. In between refuel at our Keir Hardie Café while passing through the Ideas Exchange staffed by campaigners who share our ambition to change Britain, for the many, not the few.

Solidarity price We couldn't possibly put on an event of this scale and ambition at just £5 per ticket, we do to help ensure nobody who wants to attend will be put off by the cost. We are only able to do this if those who can afford the viable cost of a ticket, £10, pay this solidarity price. If you can, please do. Thanks

Admission please with non-perishable food donatoon to Lewes Food Banks. .

All this in the historic environment of Lewes, home to Tom Paine, Virginia Woolf and bonfire!
