Comedian and political activist to visit the University on Thursday 16 June in a bid to get young people to vote to stay in Europe.

There are still a few tickets available to attend Eddie Izzard's Stand up for Europe campaign tour at the University of Leicester on Thursday 16 June 2016.

On Monday 23 May, Eddie kicked off a campaign to visit 31 cities over 31 days in a bid to get young people to register for the referendum and vote to stay in Europe. 

As part of his tour, he will be visiting the University of Leicester on Thursday 16 June where he will deliver a speech about his views on voting to stay in Europe and he will take part in Q&A.

The event will take place between 5.00 – 6.15pm in the Peter Williams Lecture Theatre, Fielding Johnson South Wing at the University of Leicester.

Eddie knows that young people will be key to the result - a recent poll by the National Union of Students found 76 per cent of students want to Remain with just 14 per cent backing Leave. But Ipsos MORI found 18-24-year-olds were almost half as likely to vote as the over-65s, with just 44 per cent voting compared to 76 per cent.
