Join the culture vultures who have flocked to Hull


The Yorkshire Party is to visit Hull for its Autumn Conference on Friday October 12 and Saturday October 13.

Friday’s half-day session will have a business and economy focus, intended as an opportunity for Party members to engage with the business community and to make the economic case for devolution.

On Saturday, the day-long main Conference will concentrate on campaigns and policy – the Leader’s speech by Stewart Arnold will open the session, to be followed by speakers, panel discussions and workshops.

After the political business concludes, there will be a cultural event and a social occasion.

The event will take place at the historic Jubilee Central in the city centre, in easy reach of the main transport links.

Party Deputy Leader Chris Whitwood thinks introducing a social aspect is important to the Conference overall. “It is not often that Party members and supporters get together, and even rarer that it is on a social level. It will also be an event for people who support the Party but may not be interested in the main conference aspects,” he said.

“I’m incredibly excited that the Conference will be in last year’s Capital of Culture! This will be our first two-day conference. The Saturday evening social event will allow members to relax and get to know each other better,” said Chris.

“Our early bird offer means full Conference passes will cost only £15 until Yorkshire Day, so book early for your chance to support and shape the future of the Yorkshire Party! See you there!”

Tickets for individual events can be bought separately or conference passes can be bought offering a discount. Prices will range from £3 for a student to attend just the social to £17 for a full conference pass. The early bird discount on full Conference passes will be available until August 1.
