Many ConservativeHome readers will be familiar with our annual programme of fringe events at the Conservative Party Conference. Every year the ConHome marquee is full to bursting with audiences who come to hear a wide range of ministers, MPs, experts and commentators discuss the big issues of the day. People often tell us that they spend more time at our events than in the actual conference hall, which is praise indeed.

I am very pleased to announce that this year we will again be presenting a bustling programme of ConservativeHome fringe events for our readers to enjoy – hosted online, alongside the online Party Conference. 2020 may have disrupted all sorts of events and institutions, but not this one.

Over the course of three days – Saturday 3rd October, Sunday 4th October and Monday 5th October – our team will be hosting no fewer than 18 fringe events.

These include ‘In Conversation With…’ interviews with prominent Cabinet Ministers and parliamentarians, and panel events on a panoply of topics, from the Red Wall seats to the future of transport, and from post-Brexit trade policy to cutting reoffending – all hosted, of course, by the ConservativeHome editorial team.

The full event listings can be found here.

We hope you will join us, and take the opportunity to engage in what promises to be a fascinating and entertaining few days of discussion and debate.

All of our fringe events are completely free to view, and for the first time they will be open to Party members and non-members alike, meaning that this year we hope to reach an even wider audience than at the traditional in-person conference. To take part, simply register for your free Party Member or Observer (member of the public) ticket to access the Conservative Party Conference here.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
