Can Jeremy Corbyn become prime minister?

Starting in: 8 Hours 25 Mins

Access to Times+ events and offers is exclusive to members of The Times and The Sunday Times

Join us the afternoon of Sunday, September 24 at the Brighton Harbour Hotel for our Red Box event taking place during the Labour Party Conference in Brighton.

They said he could never become leader, they said he couldn't survive; they said he could never increase Labour's popularity. So as Jeremy Corbyn marks two years in the job, does he now stand a real chance of becoming Prime Minister?

Matt Chorley, the Red Box editor, and a panel of Times political columnists and journalists including Philip Collins, Lucy Fisher and Rachel Shabi will be doing what they vowed never to do again: make a prediction about the future of British politics.

Doors open at 3.30pm and subscribers are invited to join us for tea before the discussion begins at 4pm. All guests will also receive a Red Box mug.
