Please note

We are very sorry to let you know that due to the upcoming general election Yvette Cooper has had to pull out of this year’s festival, Yvette sends her apologies but hopes you understand that her priority and focus right now is on campaigning for reselection by her constituency.

The good news though is that we have a fantastic replacement, twitter sensation Led by Donkeys are available and will be bringing their new book How Four Friends with a ladder Took on Brexit to Cambridge, it will be only their second ever outing on stage.  They will be in discussion with Melissa Benn and will tell us how, spurred by  government lies, they pulled off one of the most innovative guerrilla national poster campaigns in UK history.  How they used the actual words of Leaders to expose the hypocrisies of the Brexit debacle.  We hope that like us you will be fascinated to hear for yourselves first-hand how they pulled it off.  Led by Donkeys will be on stage at the same time that Yvette was programmed for, 4-5pm on the TTP Stage at the Cambridge Union.  

Your tickets for Yvette Cooper will be valid for this event and can be presented on the door, you don’t need to do anything.  However if this isn’t for you and you would like a refund please contact the box office as soon as possible.
