Join this interactive session about establishing a House of Citizens

Sortition Foundation are building a movement to transform how politics works and put ordinary people back in the drivers seat. Come along to this interactive session to learn about how we can use a process called sortition to replace the House of Lords with a House of Citizens - a perpetual citizens assembly with people from all walks of life.

The Fête of Britain is a four-day celebration of collaboration and imagination in the face of the great challenges of our time.
