Blackpool gets ready to host NW Labour Party

Final preparations are underway in Blackpool ahead of the North West Labour Party conference, which returns to the resort this weekend.

The conference will take place at The Imperial Hotel, North Promenade, and sees the party return to Blackpool for the fourth year in a row.
 
More than 500 delegates, including a raft of the UK’s most influential politicians,  including Labour party leader Ed Milliband and Deputy Leader Harriet Harman, will attend along with fellow front-benchers Yvette Cooper, Andy Burnham and Ivan Lewis.
 
Burnham, the Shadow Secretary of State for Health, will open the conference while Jack Straw is the speaker at the Conference Dinner on Friday evening.
 
“This is the fourth year in a row the North West Labour party conference has come to Blackpool,” says Councillor Graham Cain, Blackpool Council’s cabinet member for tourism and leisure. “We are pleased to be welcoming the delegates back to the resort. There is always a real buzz around the town when we attract big conferences and this will be no different.”
 
A spokesperson for Labour North West said: “We always receive a warm welcome in Blackpool. We are delighted to be returning this year for what is an important Conference ahead of the General Election next year. As well as policy debate, training and speeches, we will be taking our campaign for the future of the NHS to the streets of Blackpool.”
