Our biggest fringe yet!

Dear supporters,

Last night we held our biggest Annual Conference fringe yet.

Over 100 people piled into a conference suite at the Old Ship Hotel in Brighton to listen to Tom Copley AM, Emma Dent Coad MP and our Chair Ken Ritchie setting out why the Labour Party should back a republic.

It’s clear that this is an issue which is rising up the agenda for party activists with more attendees and enthusiasm than ever before.

Here is a picture from last night’s event:


Thank you to all who came along and especially to our brilliant speakers: Tom, Emma and Ken.

It was great to see so many of you last night. But we must continue to get bigger and better.

As our speakers said last night, we need to say loud and proud that we are Labour and we are republicans!

Can you help us share our message by either donating to the campaignsharing our page on Facebook or tweeting about us?

You can also forward this email to your friends and ask them to sign up to the campaign here.

Only by increasing in numbers can we mobilise our movement and encourage the Labour leadership to back a republic.

A bigger movement means we can print more leaflets, pack out more events around the country and throughout the year, and fundraise to keep up with the monarchy’s well-funded PR operation.

Could you help spread the word today?

Best wishes,

Labour for a Republic

Are you free on the 19th August?

Dear all,

Labour for a Republic supporters are getting together in London on Saturday 19th August to build support for republicanism within the Labour Party. More and more people are recognising that the monarchy is long past its sell-by date and our democracy needs an elected head of state.

We are therefore inviting you to join us for Labour for a Republic’s next committee meeting to discuss how we can take advantage of the new opportunities for us in the Party and how we organise for the year ahead.

The next Labour for a Republic committee meeting will take place at 12.30 on Saturday 19th August in the upstairs room of the Hoops and Grapes Pub, 80 Farringdon Street, London, EC4A 4BL. 

The pub has a kitchen, so members are welcome to purchase lunch during the meeting.

Labour for a Republic holds committee meetings regularly throughout the year. If you’re unable to make the meeting but want to get more involved with the campaign, please email

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 19th August!

Best wishes,

Matt and the Labour for a Republic team
