Liberal Democrats

About us

We are a group of students who believe in a society wherein nobody is enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. We welcome party members and non-party members alike who share these goals and are interested in Liberal politics.

We hope to create an open environment for socialising, friendly debate and political discussion.

Membership

We offer a single tier of membership, which provides access to all of our social events and any activities that the society hosts. Your membership fees cover the expenses associated with such activities. For example, when we host guest speakers, we may use society funds to cover their travel expenses. Similarly, if we need to hire transport or a venue for our events, this is typically funded through membership fees.

Events and Activities

During the course of the year we plan to host:

  • Freshers events, possibily including a society barbecue, given sufficienct interest.
  • Social events (with and without alcohol), including jointly-hosted events with other university societies. We plan to host in-person events this year, but online and hybrid events may also take place. These could include theme nights, celebrating Liberal achievements in and out of government, such as the legalisation of same-sex marriage and the Great Reform Act.
  • Campaigning on behalf of local Liberal Democrat candidates.
  • Society Christmas Dinner and End of Academic Year Dinner.
  • Visits to the National Liberal Club, an exclusive and historical site of relevance to British Liberal politics.
  • Guest speaker events (MPs, ex-MEPs, MSs, MSPs, AMs, Councillors, candidates, etc.)
  • Charity fundraising and events.

In addition, we plan to attend the 2022 Pride march in London and the upcoming Liberal Democrat Federal Conference.
