Hustings Events

With the General Election approaching on June 8th, there will be hundreds of hustings taking place across the UK. Why not find out if there is one in your area, or perhaps you could organise your own through your local church or community group?


Hustings are public meetings (often held at a local church) where election candidates speak to potential voters. They are a great way to hear directly from the candidates and to ask them questions about the issues you care about.
