HUSTINGS FOR THE WEST MIDLANDS EUROPEAN ELECTIONS

May 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Now the European elections on the 23rd May are getting into full swing we have a great opportunity for you.  On Monday 20th May 2019, Stratford4Europe is hosting a hustings with the candidates for the West Midlands European elections.

The hustings are taking place at Stratford-upon-Avon School, Alcester Road, Stratford-upon- Avon CV37 9DH starting at 7.00 pm.

This will be an important opportunity for voters in Stratford-on-Avon and the surrounding districts to hear at first hand each party’s policies regarding the UK and Europe.

We have invited each of the seven parties to send a candidate to the hustings.  The parties standing in the West Midlands are:

CHANGE UK

CONSERVATIVE

GREEN

LABOUR

LIBERAL DEMOCRATS

THE BREXIT PARTY

UKIP

We have already received acceptances from three of the parties but are hoping all seven will accept our invitations.  We will keep you informed about which parties and candidates will be taking part.

Although this event is being organised by Stratford4Europe we are committed to making sure that all the candidates taking part receive an equal hearing.  For this reason we will be engaging an independent and neutral chair to manage the proceedings.

Also, we will be welcoming audience members who support any of the seven different parties as long as they share our commitment to see fair play for all the candidates.

During the evening each candidate will be asked to make a short opening statement and then this will be followed by questions to all candidates from members of the audience.

Afterwards the formal hustings will be followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to chat informally with the candidates and other members of the audience.

The venue, Stratford-upon-Avon School, is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Stratford and a 10 minute walk from Stratford railway station.  There are also more frequent services to Warwick Parkway on the Chiltern line (20 minutes by taxi to Stratford).  For those coming by car there is ample free parking at the venue.

Doors will open at 6.30 pm for a 7.00 pm start and the event will end by 9.00 pm.
