Kent Event Centre is to host The Brexit Party Conference, as part of a nationwide tour ahead of Brexit.

The conference will take place on September 26 and is a chance for delegates to meet local MEPs and prospective parliamentary candidates on a one-to-one basis, to discuss local policy ideas and to listen to a speech from Nigel Farage and keynote speakers.

The tour will visit additional locations across the UK including London, Colchester, Lincoln, Doncaster, Sedgefield, Dundee, Southport, Telford, Wales and Exeter.

The Brexit Party Conference is the second parliamentary event to come to Kent Event Centre in recent months. In July, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt took part in a private members questions and answer session at the venue, which drew an estimated audience of 700 party members.

Ellie Nicholl, deputy event centre manager at Kent Event Centre, said: “Kent is a key stop on the Brexit Party Tour and we’re really excited to have been chosen as a host venue for the event, which is set to attract up to 2,000 delegates.”
