An Audience with Ann Widdecombe....



The Rt Hon Ann Widdecombe was one of the most popular and formidable politicians of her generation, representing Maidstone for twenty three years from 1987 until 2010. During her time in Parliament she was Minister of State for Prisons, then between 1997 and 2010, Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Shadow Home Secretary. 

Upon retiring from Parliament in 2010 Ann moved to remote Dartmoor and launched a successful new career as a writer, columnist, TV personality, star of pantomime and Strictly Come Dancing!

Throughout this time Ann has continued her steadfast support for the Conservative Party both nationally and here in Kent, returning regularly to campaign at election time and support our local fund raising. This includes being “President” of the West Kent 500+ Club which has raised almost £25,000 for local Association funds over the last two years.

We are delighted that Ann has agreed to be interviewed about her remarkable life at the next in our series of “An Audience with…”  This will be held on Thursday 2 November 2017 at Shorne Village Hall, 16 The Street, Shorne, Gravesend DA12 3EA. Doors open at 7pm with the show commencing promptly at 7.30pm.

After being interviewed and answering questions from the audience, Ann will conclude the evening by drawing the winning numbers for the November and December 500+ Club, with almost £5,000 of prize money being presented to the lucky winners.

West Kent Tea at Conservative Party Conference

All members and friends of West Kent Conservatives are warmly invited to attend our hugely popular Afternoon Tea at Conservative Party Conference, Manchester.




This will be held from 4.30pm - 6pm on Monday 2nd October 2017.

This is the eighth year we have hosted an Afternoon Tea, which is becoming a 'must go' event due to the exclusive and unusual venues we choose and the high quality of the catering provided. 

For Manchester 2017 we are returning (by popular demand) to the award-winning Richmond Tea Rooms. 

Tickets are £25 per person for a full Afternoon Tea including a glass of Champagne on arrival. 

Our preferred booking / payment method is online via our secure server, using a credit or debit card. See below. Alternatively you may send a cheque (payable to West Kent Conservatives) to Campaign HQ, Suite 3, Business Centre, Commercial Road, Paddock Wood, TN12 6EN. If paying by cheque please write 'Conference Tea' on the reverse along with the name(s) of those attending.



How many tickets?


Please note: booking and payment must be received by Friday 22 September 2017. This is necessary as regrettably in previous years a number of people have said they would attend and then failed to come on the day. This has resulted in the event losing money and needing to be subsidised by West Kent Conservatives. This is a social event, not a fund raiser, and we only charge for tickets what we are being charged by the venue.
