    Reverse Hustings

    Public Speaks: Candidates Listen

    Ever felt that politicians aren’t really listening?  Ever felt that manifesto soundbites are rarely a satisfactory answer to the questions put to candidates at ’Question Time’ style hustings and television debates? Come to an event with a difference in the run up to the General Election.  Candidates will listen as members of the public speak about what their concerns really are.  Only after they have listened for an hour will candidates have a chance to respond to what they have heard by participating in a chaired discussion with one another. 

    Do something different this election.  Make your voice heard.
