What can we learn from the Corbyn years?

Saturday 25th September11am12:30pm
Old Steine Gardens - Big Tent

Corbyn’s unexpected leadership of the Labour Party between 2015-2019 had a huge effect on the British political system, bringing socialist ideas back into public debate for the first time in a generation, and helping re-energise a movement for social change that many of us have been irreversibly transformed by. At the same time, the sudden and devastating defeat at the last election not only meant a huge setback for our movement, it also exposed limitations and weaknesses within the project itself. The last year and a half has seen much intense, and sometimes fraught, debate online about what we have learnt and what went wrong. This opening event for the TWT21, will be a first big opportunity to discuss and debate in person and hear from key figures involved in the project.
