Join us in the LabourList Marquee in Manchester this week

Thousands of Labour activists are in Manchester for Labour conference already, and thousands more are on their way in the coming days. LabourList will be in Manchester from the start of conference until the very end, covering everything from conference floor speeches to fringe events, announcements and gossip.

But in addition, we’re also holding what is by far the biggest set of conference fringe events we’ve ever organised – most of which will take place in our special conference marquee tent, right outside the conference centre. In addition to our own fringe events, our tent will host events organised by groups from across the Labour movement – including the Co-op Party, Compass, Left Foot Forward, ASLEF, Mass1, the TUC, Labour Coast and Country and Thompsons Solicitors (who are also sponsoring the venue).

We’ll also be liveblogging from the tent throughout the conference – so please do come and say hello.

For those who can join us – our conference fringes are listed below, and a list of all of the fringes taking place in the marquee can be found here.
