With the June 8th general election fast approaching Ripon Cathedral will be playing host to candidates from political parties standing for election in Ripon and Skipton this Saturday, as they outline their campaign policies.

Members of the public are invited along to the event at 11 am with refreshments from 10.30am. Questions can be submitted beforehand to the cathedral office. Parliamentary candidates from Labour, the Conservative party, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party will be in attendance.

The session will be chaired by the Dean of Ripon, the Very Rev John Dobson, who said: “I am delighted to make the cathedral a safe neutral space in which members of the community can quiz parliamentary candidates about issues that are important to them.

“Following the hustings that we hosted before the last general election we received many expressions of gratitude from people who found the exercise extremely helpful. I look forward to facilitating the discussions and debate.”
