An evening with Lord Adonis

An evening with Lord Adonis


Suffolk EU Alliance are hosting an evening with Lord Andrew Adonis, a pro-European Union Labour peer and former cabinet minister. He's coming to Ipswich to talk about where he thinks we currently are with Brexit as the final stage of the Tory leadership race is underway.  He'll be discussing recent developments, what he thinks is going to happen with Brexit and conclude with what he believes needs to be done to make sure we get a People's Vote and a Remain victory. 

After his talk, Andrew will do a Q&A with the audience.

You must book tickets through Eventbrite, as there are a limited number of seats in the auditorium.  All attendees must have a valid ticket.
