Month: January 2016
Tired of the same faces, same arguments, same policies week after week? Bored of the carbon copy bombast? Take a fresh look at politics, hear new arguments and speak to passionate people who might just make you think again about the other parties at our Valentine’s Political Speed Dating event.
This is easily our most expansive, exciting and unusual event to date. A whole host of outstanding speakers will be on hand to tell you why they love their politics, and why you should too.
It’s certainly not one to miss!
- Glyde House (opposite Bradford Ice Arena), Glydegate, Little Horton Lane BD5 0BQ
- 17th February – 7pm
Booking is essential as we expect this to be yet another sell out – and with these speakers, how could it not be?

Kersten England (Chief Executive Bradford Council) – Kersten is coming along to tell you about the role of the council, how it works and how our society wouldn’t look anything like it does without the vital services it provides.
Hawarun Hussain (Shipley, Green Party) – Hawarun will be hoping to convince you that The Green Party deserves your vote, explaining how it’s not just for veggies & vegans, but filled with local & national policies which will strike a chime with you.
