Taking back control?
How democratic is Britain? If we really want political control, what reforms do we need in Westminster? How does the monarchy shape and reflect a centralised and secretive British state? Can we learn from our European neighbours?
Hear a range of speakers who will look at these issues. Find out what reforms Republic proposes for Britain's democracy - and why the battle to take control needs to begin at home.
Come and join the debate, find out more about Republic's campaign.

* And more speakers to be announced *
You'll have the chance to enjoy the Discovery Museum's Great Hall - a magical art-deco space at the top of the museum - one of the building's original features, and just a short walk from Newcastle Central Station. You can find it on the map.
The Discovery Museum is a five minute walk from Newcastle Central station where national and local rail services depart as well as the Tyne & Wear Metro service and local bus services. The museum is well signposted from the station. You can find out more about the venue and get more directions from discoverymuseum.org.uk/visit-us/getting-to-us.
Food for thought
Tickets include lunch and refreshments.
At previous events attendees have told us they loved that their ticket included lunch, giving them more time to debate the issues, meet other supporters, and talk to speakers and key figures in the campaign. This time we will again have fresh food available for lunch - details to follow. We'll also be serving tea, coffee, juices and biscuits throughout the breaks.
