How does this country work?

How does this country work?

22nd & 23rd July

A weekend of workshops for people who would like to understand UK politics and find out how they can get involved.

On Saturday, artist Rosalie Schweiker and journalist Hettie O’Brien will give a practical introduction to UK politics. We’ll try to answer the most pressing questions you might have, from “Why should I vote?” to “Why did I never learn anything about this in school?”

On Sunday morning, collective Keep It Complex will host a family-friendly brunch. A relaxed start to your Sunday morning, with great food and conversations, so you can digest politics.

On Sunday afternoon, we will play politics. This is your chance to stand at the despatch box, glue on that Jeremy Corbyn beard or put on the Theresa May pearls. Together with writer Sarah Jury we have devised a parliament live action role play.

All of these events are free, but please book tickets via eventbrite:
