The Green Party of England and Wales will hold their 2017 Autumn Conference in Harrogate, returning just a year and a half after their 2016 Spring Conference in the same city.

The event will take place in the Harrogate International Centre from the 7th-10th of October. Interestingly, the previous Friday-to-Sunday model appears to have abandoned in favour of a slightly longer Saturday-to-Tuesday agenda. Keen conference goers may see this as an opportunity to enjoy a more relaxed experience with less of a time restriction, however the announcement closely follows the closure of the last Conference, which was swallowed up by the Global Greens Gathering. Given the previous Conference was somewhat less productive than others, members can look forward to a packed few days once more.
