Islington South & Finsbury election candidates will debate at St Mary’s Church in Upper Street on Tuesday.

Emily Thornberry (Labour), Jason Charalambous (Conservative), Kate Pothlingam (Lib Dems), Talia Hussain (Greens) and Paddy Hannam (Brexit Party) will all go head-to-head in a bid to win your vote.

Incoming Gazette editor André Langlois will chair the panel, where candidates will answer your pre-submitted questions on areas such as the NHS, Brexit, housing, crime, education, Universal Credit and more.

We'll then open it up to questions from the floor.

"It's really exciting to be involved in this event," said André. "Political discourse has never had such a high profile, and it's vital that the public get the chance to question the candidates chasing their votes."
