Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Louise Bours.
In 2014 I was elected to serve the North-West Region as a Member of the European Parliament. You can find out more about my life below.
Louise began her career as an actress in London’s West End. She trained at Mountview Conservatoire for the Performing Arts, and went on to appear in many popular TV shows including, Peak Practice, Grown Up’s, Band of Gold and Brookside. She has also made numerous TV commercials including a highly successful campaign for BT.
Louise spent two years with the D’oyly Carte Opera Company, resident at the Savoy Theatre in London, and went on to appear in many shows in London including, The Mikado, Pirates of Penzance, Trial by Jury, Little Shop of Horrors and Escape from Pterodactyl Island.
Following the birth of her daughter in 2002, Louise moved back to the North West. There she formed the duo ‘The Forces Sweethearts’ with fellow West End actress Deborah Stokes, and together they headlined many of the 1940s festivals up and down the country.
Louise was elected to Congleton Town Council in 2003, and following the birth of her second daughter in 2004, was elected to Congleton Borough Council. She served as Congleton Town Mayor in 2006-2007.
After joining UKIP in 2009, Louise served as a branch Chairman, County Chairman and finally regional Chairman in 2013. She was elected to the National Executive Committee of UKIP in 2011.
In September 2011 Louise began work on a BA (hons) in Social Science. She completed her degree in May of this year, being awarded a 2:1 from Lancaster University through UCBC.
Louise continues to live in Cheshire with her two daughters.
