Violet Nights: General Election: Power of Youth

Join us in a lively debate in the lead up to the general election, where we explore the political mobilisation of young people and how we can use our voice and vote to impact the current political climate.

Hear from Labour candidate, Lucas Bertholdi-Saad; Conservative Party member, Alexandra Jezeph; and Liberal Democrat candidate, Sarah Quarmy. Spoken word artist Kareem Parkins-Brown and singer songwriter Bee Bakare also perform.

Violet Nights is a monthly series of participatory events programmed by young people, for young people aged 18 – 30.
