Who we are
We are the University of Essex Conservatives. A society for people who are members of, supporters of, or are interested in, Conservative politics and the Conservative and Unionist party.
As the only "Right wing" society on Campus, we exist to provide and support a broad church of ideas. We have members who are centrists, right-wing, libertarians, one-nation, Thatcherites, and more! The society has been running successfully for many years, and we also look to engage with the local Conservative associations, as well as the newly established branch of the Young Conservatives!
What we do
We're a very social society; we often meet weekly and have a number of bigger socials every term. These include: TopBar socials, Port & Policy nights, the annual dinner with a special guest, and spring forum. We also host special guests for talks and campaign for local and national elections.
Many of our members have experienced cross-party debate, media interaction, campaigning and standing as candidates in the local elections.
