Election 2017: Hustings coverage for Croydon’s three constituencies

By - Monday 22nd May, 2017

With sixteen days to go until the election, the Citizen announces coverage of hustings events for the north, centre, and south of the borough

The general election takes place on 8th June. With manifestoes now published by all major parties, the national campaign will step up a gear as Britain’s politicians make their final pitches for your vote. In Croydon, the candidates seeking your support will be taking live questions from the public at events across the borough.

The Citizen is pleased to announce that its popular format of livetweet coverage will return for three events, one in each Croydon constituency. Citizen contributors are also attending some of the hustings, with plans to submit their own write-ups of the events. If you would like to be one such contributor, please contact us.

The events are naturally open to the public and free to attend. They are:

  • Croydon Central: 1st June, 6pm-8pm, TMRW Tech Hub, 75-77 High Street, Croydon. Hosted by Croydon BID and the Croydon Advertiser. (Tickets are free but booking is required.) This event has been rescheduled from its original date of 23rd May.
  • Croydon North: 31st May, 7:30pm-9pm, St John’s Church, Sylvan Road, Upper Norwood. Hosted by Crystal Palace Chamber of Commerce.
  • Croydon South: 1st June, 8pm-9:30pm, Christ Church Purley, 861-863 Brighton Road, Purley. Hosted by South Croydon churches. Doors open at 7:30pm.
Follow the Citizen on Twitter to see updates come in live on all three nights, or look out for the relevant articles, which will go live on all three relevant days.
