In Conversation with Esther McVey MP and Philip Davies MP


Thursday 22nd September 2022


6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Crowne Plaza Chester
Trinity Street, Chester CH1 2BD

Two leading Conservative backbench MPs, Esther McVey and Philip Davies, will be the guest speakers at an exclusive private dinner in Chester on Thursday 22nd September.

Esther, who was the keynote speaker at Downtown’s very first awards event back in 2003, is the MP for Tatton. She has served in the cabinets of David Cameron, Theresa May, and Boris Johnson, and is one of the leading members of the influential ‘Blue Collar Conservatives’ group. Prior to her political career, Esther was a successful entrepreneur, and a TV presenter.

Philip has been the MP for Shipley in West Yorkshire since 2005. He is a well known ‘rebel’, having voted against the Tory whip more than any other Conservative MP. Before being elected to parliament, he worked as a senior marketing manager at retail giant Asda.

The husband and wife team present ‘Saturday Selection’ on GB News. DIB chief executive Frank McKenna has been a regular guest on their show, and it will be a case of ‘role reversal’ as he puts the questions to Esther and Phil about their views on the economy, the government, business, and life in Westminster.
