It will be chaired by Rev Wayne Clarke who said: “The candidates will give a short opening statement and will then face questions from the audience. Most of the questions will be prepared in advance but the politicians will have no notice of what the questions will be. There will be some time set aside for additional questions from the floor to make for what should be a lively evening.”
It is free to attend and open to Huddersfield constituents.
