Upcoming events

The Spectator will be hosting five fringe events at this year’s Conservative Party conference. Join us for debates and free gin & tonic with The Spectator’s Fraser Nelson, James Forsyth, Isabel Hardman and a stellar line-up of speakers.

All Spectator fringe events are free to attend but those wishing to beat the queues can purchase a priority ticket for £5, which guarantees entry. All proceeds will go to our nominated charity, We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. Sign up here for the latest news on the Spectator fringe events.
