Evening: Glee Club!  An unmissable event.
It's the housing and diversity motion, and then Tim's speech, so we will be sitting in the hall all morning. An excellent way to recover from the Glee Club the previous night!


The Lib Dems are the most democratic party, with our policies developed by and voted on by our members. We are keen for Tower Hamlets to make our voice heard - if you're coming to Conference, or want to get involved come and join us in York.

Conference is a great place for meeting friends new and old in the Party, getting into (polite!) arguments about policies, and mixing with the members at the bar or restaurants. Not to mention the unmissable Glee Club!

The contingent from Tower Hamlets will be larger than ever this year, and we are a close and friendly group who are committed to building the party in Tower Hamlets, across London and nationwide.  If you've never been, we can show you the ropes - or maybe you can teach us new tricks!

We will have a welcome group for the start of conference, at 4pm on Friday 11 March.  We will then have drinks for members at 8pm on Friday in the Novotel bar. If you arrive later or on Saturday, phone Stephen on 07505 982212 and we will tell you where to find us.
