Fracking the Downs – Failing Our Future

Join the big Energy Debate with Michael Meacher MP - former Labour Minister of State for the Environment, energy policy expert Professor Stephen Thomas (University of Greenwich), Brenda Pollack (Friends of the Earth) and Alan Rew (Balcombe campaigner).

Coal? Nuclear? Fracking? Freezing energy prices? Changing carbon reduction targets? Do we have the tools to tackle climate change or must we urgently develop renewables and re-nationalise the companies running the UK’s energy sector?

Discuss how the private energy giants impact our environment, economy and pockets. Do you agree that the tide has turned in favour of public ownership? Come along to have your say. Refreshments will be available. Doors open 1.30pm.

Tickets: £5 waged; £3 concessions
