Mayoral Hustings in Finchley


On Saturday July 4, CWF will be hosting one of our huge action days with FREE DRINKS, and a £10 dinner in Finchley and Golders Green!

But, this time there will be a unique twist. We are also hosting the first ever Conservative hustings for London Mayor - chaired by the one and only Iain Dale.


  • Sol Campbell
  • Stephen Greenhalgh
  • Andrew Boff
  • Ivan Massow

And more are expected to announce shortly...

Here's the plan:

Saturday 4th July

12.30pm: Meet at West Finchley tube station for a short briefing from Mike Freer MP, before heading out campaigning and knocking on doors.

3pm: Everyone meets back at the Bohemia, a local brew pub with a fine selection of ales and craft beers: www.thebohemia.co.uk

3.30pm: We will then host the first ever Conservative Mayoral Hustings! Proceedings will be chaired by top author, broadcaster and political commentator Iain Dale. This will include a FREE BAR.

5.30pm: We'll then have a delicious buffet dinner available at £10 a head.

After that, we'll go wherever the night takes us!

RSVP below to reserve your space today.

P.S. A snippet for the fact-fans out there. Finchley and Golders Green is a historic constituency for CWF. Why? Because it was once represented by Margaret Thatcher - our first female Prime Minister, who founded CWF to speak up for the kind of popular, bread-and-butter Conservatism that Britain needs today.



Conservative Way Forward are all about securing the future of our Party - and that starts with you - the activists.

During the general election we all dedicated hours, days and weeks of our lives to pounding the pavements, knocking on doors and campaigning long hours to ensure the Conservative victory that Britain needs.

But, what comes next for you? At CWF, we're committed to finding and training the next generation of Conservative leaders. That's why we're starting a new programme: CWF Leadership Training.

Our first weekend will be on the beach in sunny Margate, on 8 - 9 August. We will be offering this opportunity to just a lucky few, to take part in this training course with senior figures and experts from the Conservative movement.

The sessions will cover:

  • Public speaking & storytelling - Peter Botting
  • Voluntary Party Best Practice and Grassroots Policy Development - Dr Spencer Pitfield
  • An introduction to political law.
  • How to rebut negative attacks.
  • An introduction to TV/radio interviews.
  • War stories from MPs who have made it.

Being CWF, we will obviously follow this with a slap-up dinner on the beach, with lots of drinks, followed by a fun night out in Margate! For those who stay overnight we will spend a morning on the beach, have the obligatory fish'n'chips for lunch before making our way home.

Here's the important bit:

For people to get the most out of the training sessions, we will have to limit numbers. So, there are just 30 available slots for the training day, and 20 spaces for people to stay overnight. These tickets are first-come, first-serve.

Sign up below to reserve your ticket. See you on the beach!

P.S. Remember, this is a unique opportunity to combine a fun weekend on the beach with some top-level training, and meet like-minded people along the way! Numbers are limited, so book today to make sure you don't miss out.


CWF Summer Drinks Reception


Sir Gerald Howarth MP and the Management Board of Conservative Way Forward invite you to join us on the Terrace of the House of Commons for the Annual CWF Summer Drinks Reception.

Come and enjoy a summer's evening of wine and political conversation, with one of the best views of London and the Thames. This will be a great chance to mingle with leading Thatcherite MPs and Peers and discuss how we can continue to fight for sound principles.


Join us for a weekend of summer fun, Conservative campaigning, and a slap-up dinner on Bournemouth beach with the one and only Conor Burns MP. 

There will be organised transport from London, leaving early on Saturday morning, and returning on Sunday lunchtime, for those who want to really make a big weekend of it!

Spaces are strictly limited, so book your place early to avoid disappointment.

There are multiple ticket options available if you would like organised transport from London, a seat at the evening dinner, and overnight hotel accommodation.

Alternatively if you're making your own way there, you can pay for the dinner only:


Alternatively if plan to make your own way there, purely for the action day on Saturday afternoon with FREE DRINKS afterwards, please RSVP below in the normal way.


CWF Action Day at Party Conference 2015!


Join Conservative Way Forward at Conference this year on our action-packed Campaign Bus! 

At CWF we don't just talk about campaigning: we get out there and do it. That's why a huge team of us will be boarding the CWF campaign bus at 2pm on Sunday 4th October, with leading figures from the Conservative movement. We'll then head to a nearby marginal seat for a spot of campaigning in the sunshine, before returning in time for your evening plans. 

After our historic victory in May, we aren't resting on our laurels. To secure the long-term economic recovery that Britain needs, it's critical that we keep up momentum - especially in Northern cities like Manchester, where many seats are still incredibly marginal. 

It's up to this grassroots movement to finish what we started. 

Are you with us? 

Here's the plan for Sunday 4th October:

2pm: Assemble outside the secure zone and board the CWF campaign bus. We'll then head to a nearby marginal seat with senior Conservative figures, for a couple of hours of talking with voters on the doorstep, about our Conference and what it means for them.

5pm: We'll be back at the secure zone by 5pm, safe in the knowledge we've done our bit to help our local MPs in the North West.

RSVP to say you'll join us.

PS - Anyone who joins us on the CWF Campaign Bus will gain FREE ENTRY to our infamous CWF midnight reception that evening! (Tickets for non-members are £30)
