We're heading to Hornsey and Wood Green in North London as part of our General Election plan, to help campaign with the fantastic Lynne Featherstone MP. We'll be doing lots of campaigning on Saturday and Sunday, there'll also be the chance to socialise with other young liberals, with plans in Central London for the Saturday evening.
Accommodation is free, we will be staying at the Smart Backpackers Hostel in Russell Square, Central London.
Food on the Saturday night will be provided. We are giving up to £30 towards everyone's travel costs - just book your travel and we will reimburse you the cost up to £30! However please note that we will be travelling between Central and North London, and you may be required to purchase additional tickets during the weekend.
