Kickstart Weekend, 26-28 November 2021


Kickstart is the name of our highly regarded residential training weekend. We bring together the party’s most experienced and successful campaigners to train campaign teams from across the country.

Come along to get tailored, professional advice, training and bespoke mentoring for your team from experienced Liberal Democrat campaigners and councillors.

The weekend caters for everyone; whatever your role in a campaign. We have training for Basic, Intermediate and Advanced.  You’ll leave with improved campaigning skills and with a well-developed campaign plan ready for your next set of elections.

At Kickstart weekend you can meet and network with like-minded Lib Dems, who want to campaign hard to get the best deal for their community.

We have plans in place with the venue to deliver a Covid secure event dependent on the restrictions in place at the time. We may need to limit attendance in order to provide a socially distanced event.
