Kicking off Conference: The Lib Dem Newbies Pint

For the first time since 2019, Autumn Conference is hoving into view, and a welcome sight it is too.  Brighton 2022 will be our first in-person Conference since Bournemouth 2019, and for many members, it will be their first experience of an in-person Conference with the Lib Dems.

Ever since 2015, the Lib Dem Newbies admins have hosted a Newbies Pint the evening before Conference, to welcome members to Conference, with a focus on welcoming new and first-time attendees.  All are welcome – as we’ve found, Newbie-ness is more a state of mind than it is a date on a membership card!

Our 2022 Newbies Pint will take place in the North Laine Brewhouse in Brighton, at 7pm on Friday the 16th of September.  A £2 entry fee will help cover the cost of the venue, and as always, we’ll donate any profits to Newbies standing for election up and down the country via the Newbies fighting fund.  We have four exciting informal speakers confirmed for the Pint, including Sarah Green and Jamie Stone, and our fab PPCs for South Cambridgeshire and Eastbourne, Pippa Heylings and Josh Babarinde.

Please use this link to book your ticket in advance to avoid disappointment on the night – on-the-night tickets will be first-come first-served.  Attendance is for Brighton Conference attendees only –

We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to Brighton- whether this is your first Conference or your fiftieth, come along for a relaxed drink of your choice, have a chat to some other attendees, and hear from our amazing speakers about what you can expect at this year’s Autumn Conference!

    It should go without saying that the Lib Dem Newbies Admins are awaiting word from FCC and the Federal Board about what, if anything, will actually happen of this year’s Autumn Conference. We will announce the rescheduling or cancellation of the Newbies Pint once the picture becomes clear – attendees who have already paid their entry fee will be able to have it refunded or, if they choose, can opt to donate it to the Newbies Fighting Fund instead.
