Our resident humourists will introduce each candidate, one at a time, and ask them a standard question. Don’t worry, the pace will be fast & furious so they won’t have time to bore you.

The fun really starts when we then ask each candidate a personalised question. Our questions are determined after much satire searching, muck raking research.

During the evening you’ll have the opportunity to submit written questions for individual candidates to answer. We’ll draw from these as time permits and then you can judge whether to swipe left or right on the candidates.

All welcome.
