Events

Our live events programme is paused. We aim to be back with live or online events in 2021.

Informal, insightful events to improve democracy

  • Hear short, practical talks by passionate speakers, sharing from their first-hand expertise
  • Ask any questions in a panel discussion and relaxed networking session afterwards
  • Free food and drink!
  • All welcome

The lowdown

Every 2-3 months, we find a good, informal venue, fill it with tasty refreshments, invite a bunch of interesting people and spend an hour or two in productive, stimulating conversations.

You'll get to listen to short talks from a range of guest speakers who are passionate about involving people in the decisions that affect them. Each speaker will share from their own expertise – gained from first-hand, real-world experience. Then you get a chance to discuss with them as a panel.
