Candidates standing in the European Parliament elections for the West Midlands will have the chance to put their cases to the people of Birmingham at a hustings event next week. The hustings will take place on Wednesday 15th May, starting at 7pm at the Priory Rooms in Birmingham City Centre. The evening will be chaired by Eileen Schofield, former Chair and President of the Birmingham Law Society, and all the parties standing candidates on 23rd May have been invited to attend.


Doors open at 6:30pm and the event is expected to finish at 8:30pm.


The Priory Rooms Meeting & Conference Centre is located within the Quaker Meeting House on Bull Street in the city centre, right next to the Metro tram stop and a short walk from Snow Hill train station and local bus services.

A similar event has also been organised to take place at Stratford-upon-Avon School on Monday 20th May 2019, from 7pm to 9pm.

Although this event is being organised by Stratford4Europe we are committed to making sure that the event is non-partisan and that each candidate taking part receives an equal hearing. For this reason we will be engaging an independent and neutral chair to manage the proceedings.

Also, we will be welcoming audience members who support any of the seven different parties as long as they share our commitment to see fair play for all the candidates.

The format of the evening will be that each candidate will be asked to make a short opening statement and then this will be followed by questions to all candidates from the audience. Towards the end of the formal part of the evening each candidate will be asked to make a brief closing statement.

I have also just been informed of the following:

From the Moseley Forum mailing list:


Moseley and Kings Heath Forums are holding joint hustings at 7.30 on Tuesday, 14th May at the All Services Club, Church Rd, Moseley for the European elections. Come and meet the candidates and question them about their intentions.

This is your opportunity to grill candidates hoping to get your vote; it sadly looks like we’re very much going to be staying in the EU for some time, so time to find out EXACTLY what your candidates plan to do to best serve the interests of the people of the West Midlands at the European Parliament.
