What do you care most about? What do you want to see happening in your community and across the country?

On 31st May, we're organising Youth Hustings to give you a chance to ask your questions to representatives of the main political parties running in the General Election. 

This is your chance to ask questions about what YOU care about.

When: 31st May, 6pm

Where: The Station, Silver Street, BS1 2AG

Who: Under 25s

But I can't vote..

You don't have to be over 18 to take part in our youth hustings. Your life will be affected by the decisions made by the next government, so we believe it's crucial you get to know what they stand for, what they believe in and what promises they make.

We believe every young person should have the chance to put forward the issues that affect their lives and have conversations with policy makers. So if you're under 25, this is your chance to find out more about each party and what they have to offer.

Structure of the hustings

Each representative will present a brief overview of their party's policies. Then they will join groups of young people for around-the-table discussions. You'll get the opportunity to chat in groups with each representative. 

This will be an informal discussion. We want you to be as comfortable as possible and freely speak your mind and express your concerns. 

Tickets 

Tickets are free for young people under 25 year olds. If you want to book a group, let us know at [email protected].  

If you have any accessibility requirements, please let us know on 0117 947 7948 and we will email you with further information.
