Liberal Democrats

Leadership

Election

2020

We're hosting hustings meetings across the country - and online - to make sure you have the chance to quiz the candidates.

There are four kinds of hustings this time:

National Hustings - these are the big events of the campaign and we recommend all members attend these if they can.

Thematic Hustings - these are hustings on a specific policy or issue area and we recommend members attend the ones they're interested in.

Regional Hustings - these are hustings hosted by the party in your area of the country and we recommend members attend their local hustings.

Q&As - these are events hosted by Party Bodies and will focus around their areas of expertise, we recommend members attend Q&As hosted by party bodies they're a member of.

Dial-in numbers will be made available to people who do not have access to the internet and a number of hustings will have either a BSL signer, or captions. We are in the process of finalising which hustings will have this provision.

You can find a full list of hustings below:
