The organisers have invited representatives from all seven of the parties standing for election in the West Midlands region: Change UK, Conservative, Green, Labour, Liberal Democrats, The Brexit Party and UKIP.

A spokesman said: "To date we have received confirmed acceptances from candidates standing for the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party.

"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.

"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.

"At the end of the formal part of the evening, each candidate will be asked to make a brief closing statement."

The venue is Malvern Cube, Albert Road North, and doors will open at 6.30 pm for a 7pm start. Admission is free but by ticket only from Eventbrite or W4E.Events@gmail.com.
