The big man himself could be heading down to Exeter very shortly to promote his leadership campaign.
This comes after his ally shadow chancellor John McDonnell is due to speak at the Barnfield Theatre to a sold-out crowd this evening.
City councillor Chris Musgrave, who has organised tonight’s event, said they were in talks with Jeremy Corbyn’s camp to arrange an Exeter rally.
Corbyn has made a visit to the city before – visiting last summer during his leadership campaign.
City councillor Chris Musgrave who has organised this evening’s event said he thought it was important that politicians from the same wing of the party came to visit the south west.
“We have been in touch with Jeremy Corbyn’s people and hopefully he will be coming to speak here soon,” he said.
Corbyn will be in the Westcountry next month when he visits Cornwall.
