Bermondsey and Old Southwark is going to be one of the most intensely fought local campaigns in the general election.

I was at a meeting earlier this evening with two of the prospective parliamentary candidates and they mentioned that hustings and other election related public meetings have already started and more are being organised by various organisations.

Would it be possible to use this topic to publicise hustings as a way of making public engagement in the election easier? If you hear of, or are promoting, a hustings event, please put details in this thread.

I'd also be keen to hear of any hustings - and in particular hearing from organisers of any hustings who might be agreeable to us providing a live and/or on-demand audio stream of the event.
