Some of you may have already heard that the last day of Labour conference – i.e. Wednesday 28 September, in Liverpool – will be an open day for up to 2000 members of the public. It will include a Q&A with Ed Miliband and policy workshops with members of the shadow cabinet on themes including the British Promise; the cost of living crisis; getting the economic moving; and building stronger communities. There is also something called Labour’s Young British Talent Showcase, for 16-23 year olds to showcase their talents, ideas and skills, and compete to win “a fully funded work experience placement that will allow them to fulfil their dream.”
The open day is free of charge, but unfortunately no travel expenses can be paid, and you’ll have to go through the normal security checks, which is why the deadline is 30th August. If you’re from Bristol let me know if you’re interested. If you’re from somewhere else, get in touch with your local Labour MP. Or, I guess, the nearest one you can find!
