Grassroots Election Fever at Plymouth University
As part of the From the Grassroots project, the History of Parliament is running a general election outreach event at Plymouth University on Tuesday 5th May.
Organised to coincide with the excitement of election week, people can record their memories and experiences of general elections over the years in the video ‘polling booth.’
We will also welcome people adding their thoughts to the ‘have your say’ comments wall. Visitors will also have the chance to meet representatives from the University's political associations, as well as enjoy free hot drinks and cakes!
The aim of the event is to engage people from all age groups in the richness and diversity of our political history in Devon. Dr Kayleigh Milden, Project Co-ordinator, commented “everyone has a part to play in political history on the local and national stage, for example, whether someone was a first-time voter in the 1945 General Election or in the forthcoming Election on the 7th of May.”
The free event takes place at the Crosspoints area of the Roland Levinsky Building on Plymouth University Campus. No booking is required, please just turn up between 12:30 to 7 pm.
