Corbynomics: a day exploring how to rebuild Britain

Date:
Saturday 8 June 2019
Venue:

Proudly presented by Lewes Constituency Labour Party, supported by the TSSA trade union.

A day to explore ideas that can rebuild Britain as a radically fairer society.

The 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 to feast yourself on thinking, sharing and conversing with others from across Sussex and all points yonder. In between, refuel at the 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.
