Former schools minister Andrew Adonis is visiting Thornbury on the evening of Wednesday 27th February as part of his “Face the Future” nationwide listening tour. He’ll be sharing his views on Britain and the EU, but the main purpose of his visit is to hear from local people, whether they voted remain, leave, or not at all.
Lord Adonis is a Labour party politician and a former academic and journalist. He was Head of the Number 10 Policy Unit under Tony Blair, and later became Minister for Schools and Secretary of State for Transport.
The event is at Castle School, at 7pm. Tickets are free but donations are requested on the night to cover costs.

As the moment arrives when MPs make their choices on the proposed Brexit deal, local people have a great opportunity to hear how the EU really works. On Friday 11 January at 7pm, Molly Scott Cato MEP is talking on this subject at Turnberries Community Centre in Thornbury.
Molly is one of six Members of the European Parliament who represent the South West region. She is an economist and writer.
In the 2016 referendum there was a lot of mis-information about the UK and its relationship with the European Union, particularly around finances. We’ve put on this event so people can hear the facts, not the fiction. We also invited our MP Luke Hall to speak at the event.
Tickets are free but donations are requested to cover costs. Book here
