Speaker Profile: Lucy Harris – Coordinator of Leavers of London

A passionate supporter of Brexit, Lucy has lived in London for 8 years.

Originally form Suffolk she lived in Italy for two years (Turin and Rome), where she taught herself Italian. She then studied classical singing performance at Guildhall Conservatoire and City University in London. In 2015 she got a big break singing solo soprano at The Royal Albert Hall on behalf of the John Lewis Partnership.

Realising her singing was a sign of a deeper ability to communicate, she decided to explore an interest in publishing. She did a masters in publishing at UCL followed by a job in an international publishing house as a corporate communications executive.

When the referendum happened, she felt a strong sense of injustice from having won the vote and getting push back from the remain camp. This spurred her to use her communication skills to stand up for the democratic vote and create the Leavers of London. Her goal is to grow confidence in Leave voters in London.

She will be moving into (second!) a job in politics in February.

Tonight, January 16th, she speaks at the Two Chairmen in Westminster.
