We have just had the following letter from William Powell of the Brecon & Radnor party:
Tomorrow evening at The Guardian Hay Festival, there will be a Euro Election Hustings, sponsored by the European Movement in Wales and attended by Wales' only MEP to recontest her seat~ Jill Evans of Plaid Cymru. There will also be the Conservative No 1 candidate Kate Swinburne, Labour's No 2 Lisa Stevens and John Bufton of UKIP.
However, as Alan Butt Philip has spent a lifetime studying, learning and teaching about Europe and has the best chance ever of leading the Lib Dems to claim one of the Welsh Euro seats, I thought that you might like to have your chance to show your support. The event starts at 7:30pm at the Guardian Stage on the Festival site, which is located on a tented village on Brecon Road, Hay on Wye.
And, with a bit better notice, you might be interested to know that the Liberal Democrat European Group is sponsoring a talk by Vince Cable on the last day of the Festival, Sunday, 31st May at 1:00 pm. His sales have been surging and he has now been reallocated to the largest of the Festival venues- capacity 1,200 - The Barclays Wealth Tent, where past and future speakers have included Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Desmond Tutu, Gordon Brown, William Hague and Kirsty Williams. As this event is said to be heading for sell out, you may wish to book via the Festival website.
Very best wishes,
