Labour Party Conference is fast approaching and as with every year we’ll be running one of the largest fringe programmes on offer. Come and join us and our partners in Liverpool Town Hall, just five minutes walk from the Secure Zone. No conference pass is needed to secure attendance.
Do you have one idea to win the next election? If so please submit your ideas to Me and the winner will get to pitch their ideas to our Dragons in this year’s ‘Fabian Dragons’ Den entitled ‘One Idea to Win the Next Election’ (Sunday at 1pm).
Hazel Blears MP and Mehdi Hasan (Senior Editor New Statesmen, co-author ‘Ed: The Milibands and the making of a Labour leader’) will be joined by a special guest to pass judgement on your ideas.
To take part all you need to do is submit your pitch via e-mail and be ready and available to speak at The Fringe event itself. The pitch should be no more than 500 words and a few runners up will have their ideas posted on our prestigious and influential Fabian blog ‘Next Left’.
At the Fabians we are committed to involving our membership as much as possible in our events. A Fabian member will be on every panel and others are actively encouraged to ask questions from the floor.
Our traditional Dragons’ Den is just one event we’re doing this year. They’ll also be ‘Fabian Question Time: The Challenge for Labour’ featuring Yvette Cooper MP; ‘Is There Such a thing as Society?’ Featuring Andy Burnham MP and a discussion on the phone hacking scandal in our ‘Labour After Murdoch’ event featuring David Blunkett and Sadiq Khan MP.
Our programme consists of public facing fringe events set up to ignite debate and a series of specialist roundtables on a wide variety of topics. You can download a pdf of our full fringe programme here or read about it more on the website here
