I am so pleased that Autumn Conference is coming to my hometown of Newport, a multicultural university town with a strong history of democracy thanks to the Chartists and a rich musical heritage. I am passionate about showing our members what the town has to offer, so below are some suggestions from myself and from the local and regional party about having fun while you are here.

Amelia's top tips
Le Pub is fantastic for drinks and dancing (I am a community shareholder, so I might be biased). They have a range of unique and cheap cocktails, indie music, a pool table, and vegan food. Noisy and filled with alternative music lovers! 14 High Street, Newport NP20 1FW. Closes 1am.
I always send people to Ye Olde Murenger when I am showing people Newport for the first time – I like it’s rich history and think the bar staff there are great. 52-53 High Street, Newport NP20 1GA. Closes 11pm.
Just over the river from the event is the Pod – which has quite a strong environmental ethos. 1 Rodney Road, Newport NP19 0AP. Closes 1am.
The Tiny Rebel Pub is a great place to visit with eclectic beers and ciders. 22 High Street, Newport CF10 1DD. Closes 2am.
A bit further out is our very own micro-brewery Cellar Door. 5, Clytha Park Road, Newport NP20 4NZ. Closes 11pm.
The Pen and Wig is also a decent pub. 22-24 Stow Hill, Newport NP20 4NZ. Closes 11pm.
