The round table debate, titled ‘Canterbury 2017 Why Labour Won’, will take place on Thursday 5 October. It will reflect on June’s election result, where Rosie made history by becoming the first Labour MP to win the seat, defeating the sitting Conservative MP, Julian Brazier, by 187 votes.

Joining Rosie in the round table debate will be political editor for the Kent Messenger Group, Paul Francis, Momentum activist Ben Hickman and Clare Connerton who organised the social media campaign CanterburyNotConservative. The debate will be chaired by Canterbury resident and Birkbeck, University of London lecturer Dr Ben Worthy.

Making Politics Matter is a staff-student led initiative by Politics and International Relations at Canterbury Christ Church University. It aims to engage local communities in current political debate and issues.

Seats will be allocated on first come basis.
