Alexander Clarkson

CPF Champion for the arts

Born and raised in Hertfordshire, Alexander is an actor and a voice over artist, having trained at the Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London. Under the stage name ‘Bradley Clarkson’, his career so far has been extremely varied: from West End musicals to Shakespeare, Restoration comedy to new British writing, TV commercials to voicing animation characters for the BBC.

As an actor, he has been involved with numerous community and outreach projects, including providing entertainment for local mental health facilities, producing and performing in one-man shows for charity, hosting charity auctions and presenting community talent shows which encourage young people to participate with a special emphasis one those from challenging backgrounds. Alexander firmly believes that the Performing Arts sector is not just a vital part of our economy which needs to be nurtured and promoted, but also is a thriving community that can make a huge difference to our society at large.

Before training to be an actor, Alexander studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science and obtained a BSc(Hons) in Government and History. He has been active in the Conservative Party for the last seven years and was part of the Stevenage campaign team with Stephen McPartland MP in 2010 that saw the Party take the seat from Labour. He served four years as Deputy Chairman (Political) of Stevenage Conservative Association and is now its Association Chairman. Moreover, having been Deputy Chairman (Membership) for three years at Hertfordshire Area, he is currently serving as Area Chairman. Alexander was Campaign Manager in Stevenage for the 2016 and 2017 local elections, and the 2017 General Election. He is an active member of Conservative Friends of the Commonwealth.

Alexander is excited to be championing a community that he feels proud to be part of and to be promoting an increased engagement and policy dialogue with those working in the field of Performing Arts - ‘thinking creatively about the Creatives’.

CPF 'Tomorrow's Champions' Panel

The CPF has always played a key part in those historic periods of renewal when our Party has bounced back from election shocks and reset the debate and policy agenda for its generation.

Bringing together some of the best and the brightest young talent in the Party with strong visibility and credibility in key policy areas, our 'Tomorrow's Champions' Panel coordinates two-way policy conversations with particular groups around their specific areas of expertise and interest.

We believe the CPF should reach out to offer a deeper conversation with key voter cohorts who aren’t yet members - or even active supporters. The data suggests that policy is the area of the party that is of most interest to the groups we need to reconnect with: the young, those wanting our help with major life-shaping challenges, and other key cohorts of voters.

That’s why the CPF Champions will:
• Support the Party's policy development and outreach work
• Build a network of voters on the frontline of their communities
• Liaise with the Chairman of the CPF, George Freeman MP, on policy development with Ministers
• Work with the CPF to support development of CPF policy consultations
• Help with Outreach in support of their relevant outreach work

For further details, read our Champions' biography pages, below. If you know anyone who you would nominate as a Champion for a particular area of policy, please let us know.
