London Lib Dems! Come to the party presidential hustings in Redbridge
There will be a hustings at 7:30pm on 3 November for Liberal Democrat members to quiz Susan Kramer and Tim Farron - the candidates in the current Lib Dem Federal Presidential election.
All Liberal Democrat members are welcome, from around London and beyond.
I'll be chairing the meeting, and after a speech from each of the candidates, will take both written questions and questions from the audience.
The hustings will take place in Wynndale Hall at Woodbridge High School, St Barnabas Road, Woodford Green, IG8 7DQ.
Use the school entrance beside house number 205 St Barnabas Road. Car parking is available on-site. Woodford Underground Station (Central Line) is a 7-10 minute walk from the school. Map here.
For more details, and to offer or request a lift, see the event's listing on the Liberal Democrats' Flock Together website.
Woodbridge High School was the scene of another high-profile political visit in 1952, when Prime Minister Winston Churchill addressed the crowd in front of the Mallards Building of the then St. Barnabas county secondary (modern) school.
