East of England Regional Conference will take place on Saturday 2 November in Cambridge.

Coming just two days after the possible Brexit date and with General Election speculation in the air there is no shortage of topics to discuss.

The agenda will include an update from our new MEPs, reports from our parliamentary parties at Westminster, opportunities for debate and discussion, training sessions and the chance to meet and catch up with members from across the region.

Key themes will be the climate change emergency and Brexit.
