About the event

For Directions to this event please visit:

Britain is in crisis. Join us for an exceptional opportunity to hear from one of the stars of frontline politics, as she discusses the ideas in her timely new book: All In: How We Build a Country That Works.

In this brilliant and accessible intervention, Lisa Nandy reveals how Britain can leave behind the mess in which we find ourselves. All In charts a course towards a fairer, more equal, more prosperous country by drawing on the greatest asset we have – each other.

Rapid global changes, political division and economic crisis have left Britain reeling. For decades, large swathes of the country have been shut out, condemned to low productivity, underinvestment and managed decline, and stripped of their voice. With most major cities now beset with high housing costs, air pollution and congestion, even the “winners” are losing.

All In shows how, by handing power and resources to people with a stake in the outcome, Britain can draw on the talent, assets and potential in every part of the country and start firing on all cylinders again. Finding strength rather than fear in our differences, it reimagines the relationship between people and government so that all of us can play our part in meeting the challenges of our age and rebuilding Britain the only way that works – together.

“Nandy makes a powerful argument for rethinking politics.” New Statesman

“A much-needed intervention. … This fast and accessible read from a politician who interpreted the signs of the times earlier than most [offers] a deceptively radical vision and one that Labour should embrace.” Observer, Book of the Day


Lisa Nandy is the MP for Wigan and Shadow Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities. Born and brought up in Manchester, she worked for the charity Centrepoint and later ran the refugee and asylum programme at The Children’s Society before entering Parliament. In her decade as an MP, she has held several prominent Shadow Cabinet roles and co-founded the Centre for Towns. She was third in the last Labour leadership elections.
