General Election Hustings: Leyton and Wanstead


A hustings for the General Election (Leyton and Wanstead constituency) will take place at Wanstead Library on 24 June.

Attendance on the panel has been confirmed by the following party candidates for the Leyton and Wanstead Constituency:

  • Calvin Bailey (Labour)
  • Tara Copeland (Lib Dems)
  • Gloria Croxall (Conservative)
  • Charlotte Lafferty (Green)

“A hustings is a time-honoured way for an electorate to get to know more about candidates by quizzing them and hearing them speak alongside each other at a live event. Notably, not one of the eight candidates for this constituency have stood here before. This hustings should therefore be of interest both to local residents and to anyone intrigued by the fast changing political landscape,” said a spokesperson for the East London Humanists, which is organising the event.

Doors open at 7pm and the event begins at 7.30pm.

The event is free and open to all. Questions can be submitted in writing on the night.
