While Westminster has been living in a perpetual Brexit groundhog day, here at Progress we have been busy looking forward and building our flagship political education event of the year: Progress Political Weekend 2019.
This year we are inviting activists old and new to Stoke Rochford Hall, Grantham, on 9 and 10 March for two packed days of discussion and training, where you will be able to ask the experts your burning questions and learn about everything from economics to campaigning in your local community, as well as plenty in between. And, of course, Brexit.
We are proud to have made our application process more accessible than ever this year, and encourage you to get creative by telling us what you want the Labour party to be campaigning on in almost any format you like.
If you have any questions get in touch.

The Progressive Britain Podcast
What does Keir Starmer’s speech mean for Labour’s Brexit position? Does Theresa May secretly want no deal to be blocked? And what will parliament do for the next week before the big Brexit vote? Conor, Alison and Steph discuss, while Jess Phillips explains why the Brexit conversation needs to be taken out of Westminster.
Progress political weekend
Join us from the 9-10 March to debate the future of the Labour party and the renewal of centre-left Labour politics. Each year Progress organises a political weekend full of workshops, seminars and plenaries with Labour’s front bench and leading progressive thinkers. Held at Stoke Rochford Hall, the event has become a regular feature in the Labour political calendar.
Every year we have 30 bursaries available for Progress members; a bursary reduces the cost of a weekend ticket from £175 to just £50. Any member of Progress can apply and at least half the bursaries will be reserved for women.
