UKIP’s ‘Biggest ever’ Young Independence Conference Announced, Discount Tickets Available
Young Independence, the youth wing of UKIP, holds its annual conference in September each year and the event this year, #Horizons, is being described as the “best conference people will have ever attended”, with hype building as speakers are expected to be announced shortly.
Last year’s conference saw speakers including party MEPs such as Steven Woolfe, David Coburn and Bill Etheridge as well as Simon Richards of the Freedom Association, Tobias Andersson of the Sweden Democrats and a number of other excellent speakers. As somebody who attended the event, I can safely say it was what inspired me to get more involved in politics and was one of the best days in my political life.
Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, Nate Rydings, the events officer for Young Independence who is organising the conference, said “This conference will be the best one yet, thanks to the amazing team behind the scenes. We have some amazing speakers lined up and of course a leadership hustings.”
All members of UKIP can attend the conference and can also bring a non-member as a guest along with them – even if you’re too old to be in the youth wing. Tickets are just £10 for Young Independence members and only £15 for older members and non-members! Buy quickly though – the price will rise as the conference gets closer. You can purchase your early bird tickets here.
Also speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, Jamie Ross McKenzie, the chairman of Young Independence, said “The YI conference will be an opportunity for Young members to give their opinions on where the party should go. I’m hoping it will be in a more dynamic format than before with lots of debates involving the members. We gave it the title this year of #Horizons. What’s on the Horizon for UKIP? Where do we go from here?”
Nate, the events officer, also said: “We are encouraging all members to come down and join us whether you’re a member of YI or not.”
He added “More people need to come and show their support for YI as the younger members are the foot soldiers of this party who travel up and down the country constantly to fight your by-elections, Local elections and General Elections. When people come down, it will be one of, if not the best conference they have ever attended.”
Be sure to grab your tickets soon and get everyone from your branch to come down too – it’s an event you really don’t want to miss!
