Our joint Stand up for Labour fundraiser with West Oxfrodshire Labour is fast approaching and the Early Bird offer on tickets for this great event will finish soon. Book now to take advantage of this offer and enjoy an evening of comedy while raising money to help us fight the General Election.
A quick reminder of the line-up as follows:
Patrick Monahan is one of the best banter merchants on the comedy circuit and his act has gone down so well with Labour Party crowds that he was winner of Stand up for Labour’s Act of the year. He also won ITV1’s ‘Show me the Funny’, in which millions tuned in and he won with an audience vote.
Njambi McGrath is this year’s winner of the prestigious Hackney Empire New Acts of the Year. She has gone down a storm at Stand up for Labour shows in Stevenage, Stafford, Southampton and Liverpool.
Owen Collins is a critically acclaimed poet who has featured in shows with Grace Petrie and Arthur Smith. His humourous & political poems strike a chord with all audiences. Owen was recently elected as a district councillor for Witney South.
Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour and has now organised over 250 shows in six years, will be hosting the event.He was once a runner-up at the prestigious Hackney Empire New Acts competition and went on to appear on Paramount Comedy Channel’s ‘The World Stands Up’. He has also appeared on ‘Daily Politics’ and ran the ‘#JC4PM’ variety tour.

Congratulations to Suzette Watson who has been selected as our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the next General Election.

Suzette said, “I’m humbled and so thrilled to have been selected as Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Banbury, Bicester and our villages. We are going to fight with all our passion and strength to get the Tories out of office.

We will be working together across the constituency to connect with and reach out to every voter.

When people know about our brilliant Labour Party policies they’ll love them; policies, which will transform our communities, and give our people back the services they deserve and need to thrive.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the selection process- it truly was a whirlwind!”


The Banbury Labour Party constituency is divided into 3 Branches:

  • Banbury Town
  • Bicester & District
  • North Oxfordshire Villages

To work out in which Branch you live, see the constituency map.Since May 2010 your local Labour Party has been actively campaigning against the speed and scale of cuts to public services that are affecting the most vulnerable in our local communities. These include cuts to housing, transport services, policing, libraries, health and social care.The Conservative-led Coalition cuts go too far and too fast and, through increased unemployment, low paid jobs, many with zero hour contracts, there is a highly negative effect on the economy which although showing some small signs of recovery is still extremely fragile. There are almost a million young people unemployed which is a shocking statistic. As the burden on state services from cost of living crisis increases, the budget deficit becomes harder to reduce. The Banbury Labour Party is fighting for a strategy for growth, an increase in employment and better paid jobs, and reducing the deficit through this growth, rather than excessive cuts.
