SE Greens announce Euro elections campaign launch

The Green Party is to launch its South East England campaign for the European elections on the morning of Wednesday 7 May 2014 from its campaign bus in central Brighton.

The Green Party is to launch its South East England campaign for the European elections on the morning of Wednesday 7 May 2014 from its campaign bus in central Brighton.

The launch, beginning at 9am, will be opened by Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion, who will introduce Green candidates including the current Green MEP for the region, Keith Taylor, and Green candidate Alexandra Phillips who is hopeful of securing the party's second Green regional seat.

The venue will be the Green campaign bus*, parked on the Old Steine in sight of the Brighton Pavilion, which is then touring the entire South East region, an area stretching from Hampshire to Kent and from Milton Keynes down to the south coast, including the Isle of Wight, which the bus will be visiting at the mid point of its tour. A full bus itinerary will be announced soon and a live Bus Blog and Twitter account will be running throughout the tour.

At the launch, the bus is expected to provide plenty of visual material for cameras including the candidates, the bus itself, the location and a number of props.

Following the 9am presentations, there will be a Q&A session and then the opportunity for one-to-one interviews. Journalists are asked, please, to indicate their interview preferences by return, in advance, so that everyone can be slotted in.  Caroline Lucas' time will be strictly limited as she has to leave promptly for the Commons.

There will then be opportunities to film and photograph the bus as it sets off on its regional tour, with some flexibility to allow for camera positioning etc.

Press are cordially requested to RSVP.
