University hosts one of the last husting events in the Labour Party leadership campaign

13 August 2010

On 25 August the University of Westminster in collaboration with the Labour Finance and Industry Group  will be hosting one of the last husting events in the Labour Party leadership campaign at 309 Regent Street.

David Miliband, Ed Miliband and Ed Balls will all be present, while Andy Burnham and Diane Abbott are planning to campaign outside London on the night.

This is your opportunity to ask the candidates your questions and speak to them in the reception afterwards. It promises to be an extremely interesting meeting, coming as it does, just as the leadership contest approaches its climax.

Please note that timings for this event have changed slightly.

Registration and a pre-event drinks reception will take place from 7pm with speeches and questions for the candidates from 7.30 – 8.30pm.

Places are limited so if you would like to attend this event, please register online here.
