Jeremy Corbyn is coming to Beeston

Jeremy Corbyn is visiting Nottingham to speak to Labour students at Beeston this week.

As they look to push a general election, the Labour party leader is coming to the marginal seat to talk directly to Labour students.

It has been confirmed that the Pearson Centre for Young People will host the leader of the opposition on Thursday 31 January.

He is set to address visitors at 1.45 pm, with the event set to last until 3.30 pm.

Nottingham Trent Labour society are to attend the event, with President Neal Tank commenting: “We’re very excited to see Jeremy Corbyn coming to Broxtowe, a seat held by a Tory MP by less than 1000 votes, and will hopefully soon elect a Labour MP!”

Broxtowe is the seat of Conservative MP Anna Soubry who held her seat in the 2017 general election by a margin of 863 votes, down from 4287 in 2015.

The visit comes in light of renewed push for a general election after a no-confidence vote in the government was rejected by 325 to 306 earlier this month.

The event will take place on Thursday 31 January At 1.45pm at The Pearson Centre for Young People, 2 Nuart Rd, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 2NH.

Those hoping to attend the event can RSVP here.
