Upcoming Events & Action Days

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 our annual CWF Summer Drinks Reception.

We are delighted to announce that we will be joined by the Minister of State for Housing and Planning, Brandon Lewis MP, who has kindly agreed to speak about the government's plans for housing in this Parliament.

Come and enjoy a summer's evening of fine 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 our fight to build a stronger British economy - where more families enjoy the security of a decent job, and owning their own home.


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)
