17.30 - LabourList Rally: Rebuilding Britain, with Unite
Party insider's bible LabourList holds a rally in conjuction union Unite which should help conference-goers ease into the action.

Location: Charlotte room, The Grand
 
17.30 - The Media War On Labour... And How To Defeat It
Left-wing newspaper the Morning Star hosts Shadow frontbenchers Diane Abbott and Rebecca Long-Bailey in an event that could deliver a few punchy newslines of its own. Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has also been invited to attend.

18.45 - Labour Women's Network and Jo Cox Foundation Abuse Of Women In Public Life - How Can We Make Politics Safe Again, Online And On The Streets?
Spend ten minutes on Twitter and you'll realise how much nonsense women in politics have to put up with. This timely event with Labour MP Rachel Reeves and invited speaker Diane Abbott will be well worth an ear.
