The Annual Davy Hopper Memorial lecture @ Redhills: Durham Miners Hall
Jul 13 @ 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Following the resounding success of the inaugural memorial lecture in 2017 Education 4 Action are proud to present the Dave Hopper Memorial Lecture in the Pitman’s Parliament with two leading Labour women shadow ministers. Emily Thornberry and Laura Pidcock.

Dave Hopper was a lifelong socialist, activist and internationalist. It is therefore fitting in this the International Year of Woman and the centenary of the first stage in Women’s Suffrage that the lecture will be delivered by two Labour shadow ministers Emily Thornberry (Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs) and chaired by Laura Pidcock (NW Durham MP and Shadow Minister for Labour).

Join us for what promises to be a great evening. Demand is likely to be high -to ensure your seat book your seat on Eventbrite here: https://bit.ly/2LHC6FT
