DATE CHANGE! Due to a last minute international trip Ken has to leave the UK earlier than expected in order to make connecting flights. We have therefore moved the event to MONDAY 23 May 12:30-13:30. Watershed Box Office will be in touch with all ticket holders about this change shortly. We sincerely apologise for this change in date.

How should the Left govern? In the wake of a huge surge of interest in Labour, Ken Livingstone gives an insider’s account of the party and its future, at a pivotal moment in its history. He takes us from the self-proclaimed ‘radical socialism’ of the Greater London Council, to his controversial independent candidacy that saw him branded as ‘dangerous’ by the Blairites, to the political battles against privatisation and pollution that characterised his time as Mayor. He suggests possible lessons for those who would seek to follow, or improve on, his achievements today.

Having spent years at the head of the GLC, served two terms as London Mayor, and gone head to head with Boris Johnson, Livingstone offers an examination of the Left’s possibilities and limitations, with reflections on the current state of the Labour Party and a look into its future.
