STOP HS2 Launches National Convention on HS2

This article is about the 2011 Stop HS2 Convention. For details on the 2013 Stop HS2 Convention, click here.

The Stop HS2 2011 National Convention has been called to address the impending National Consultation announcement expected some time in February. This will be the largest and most important event ever held  by Stop HS2.  It will be held at Stoneleigh Park Convention Centre in Warwickshire on Saturday 19th February. Stoneleigh Park is affected by the proposed route.

We still don’t know what the exact remit for Consultation will be but we do know it will be National ie; the Government will be travelling the length and breadth of Britain to encourage people, business and industry to support HS2. It is vital the country is informed about the potential negatives associated with HS2 as well as the reasoning for.

The Convention is not just for existing STOP HS2 supporters. We hope that anyone who wants to know more about HS2, who wishes to hear the arguments and to understand how to engage in the consultation, will come along.

The opening speaker is Christian Wolmar “Britain’s Leading Transport Commentator” who will be providing his expert and objective view on HS2. We are delighted Christian is willing to speak and he will also be signing copies of his new book “Engines of War”.


This will be a huge event with three core focuses. There will be information sessions and workshops throughout the day on the Economic Case, the Environmental Case and Enabling Communities for Consultation. There will also be exhibitors from action groups and organisations affected or with an interest in HS2.

Please join us for all or part of the day by clicking here.  Even if you just come along to buy a T-Shirt we look forward to seeing you! Help us get our message out there so people can make informed decisions about HS2.

  1. Please ensure comments on this post are related to the convention itself (eg questions about the format, offers of help), rather then aspects of HS2. We have plenty of other articles where discussions of the business case or environmental case etc are ‘on-topic’ and relevant to the article itself.
