Conference Aston hosts launch of new pro-European Group

Conference Aston was the venue for the launch of a new pro-European group, on 28 March. The European Movement, founded by Winston Churchill in 1946, selected Aston to bring together representatives of a number of pro-EU bodies who will be leading debates in schools throughout England.
The meeting’s convener Lawrence Brewer says ‘The European ambitions of peace, prosperity and justice have never been more important than they are today. We are already leading several debates each week in schools throughout the country, and our aim now is to strengthen our national coverage and make sure we present the benefits of the UK’s membership of the EU fairly, to the upcoming generation’.

The first session of the ‘Debaters Day’, led by actor Bruce Alexander best known as Supt Mullett in A Touch of Frost, offered training in presentation techniques.

Lawrence Brewer, former Chairman of the British Jewellers’ Association and a well-known figure in the Jewellery Quarter,  says ‘Birmingham’s central location in England and the contemporary and efficient Conference Centre, on the Aston University campus, made Conference Aston the best choice for this exciting convention’.
