Manchester #STOPBREXIT Rally & Street Party
Terry Christian - Patron of MCR4EU
Manchester for Europe have announced that they are very proud today (31/10/2017) to confirm the first of what will be several announcements over the coming weeks.
Following the huge success of their 1st October Street Party & Rally they wanted to thank those who had given their time, energy and voice to the cause.
Therefore, they are delighted to present Mr Terry Christian as the first ever patron of their group.
Terry was a star on the day and since then has continued to be hugely supportive. On social media and live on Channel 5’s ‘The Wright Stuff’ he has promoted both Manchester for Europe and the campaign to stop Brexit.
It is an honour and a pleasure for all 'For Europe' groups to welcome Terry on board and we look forward to working with him more in future.
On the 1st October The Conservative Party conference was held in Manchester. At the same time Sir Vince Cable MP and Stephen Dorrell, European Movement and former Conservative Cabinet Minister, were amongst those who spoke at the crowdfunded Rally & Street Party, hosted by Manchester for Europe in Cathedral Gardens, and supported by Britain for Europe, The European Movement, Scientists for EU, Healthier IN the EU and Open Britain.
Mancunian personality Terry Christian, as MC, glue together a feast of top class entertainment, speakers and artists. Sir Vince Cable MP, Richard Corbett MEP, Mike Galsworthy (Scientists for EU), Jolyon Maugham QC, Julie Ward MEP, Dr Erinma Bell MBE, Stephen Dorrell and Seb Dance MEP were terrific while EU Elvis, the No. 10 Vigil, Madeleina Kay and the one and only Faux BoJo had a packed Cathedral Gardens duly entertained before Badly Drawn Boy and Tom Hingley (Ex Inspiral Carpets) rounded the evening off with two wonderful acoustic live sets.
Big Bubble Man thrilled the kids, while others were face painted to perfection by a team of hard working artists - none more so than the stellar work done creating four live nudes who took to the stage in almost their (EU) birthday suits!
The event was organised as a positive opportunity to emphasise that democracy didn't end on 23 June 2016 and is an ongoing, participative process; to show just how much backing there is in the country for a close relationship between Britain and Europe; and to celebrate the huge benefits of EU membership, which we don’t want to lose.

North West Regional Rally - Croxteth Park
Hosted by Liverpool for Europe with the support of European Movement Merseyside, the North West Forum was part of the national event "12 Regional Rallies - Doesn't it make Sense to Remain?". The focus of this concluding event of the "Autumn of Discontent" lies in highlighting Brexit issues not only in London but throughout the UK, where rallies or similar events were held simultaneously in each of the twelve European parliamentary constituencies. The North West event was a meeting where different groups from the region presented information about EU nationals as well as EU-facilitated and EU-initiated projects. A wide range of experts were invited to talk about all kinds of EU-supported regional issues. North West MEPs, some local MPs and other local politicians were invited to speak. One of the Key Note speakers was Joe Anderson, the Mayor of Liverpool. Photos courtesy of David Coveney
