The organisers of the event said in a statement:
"This event is open to the public and provides a rare opportunity for the people of Wellingborough to hear political speakers from different perspectives in a debate on the future of our town. There will also be full opportunities for the public to participate .
So often you will hear people say that they don't know what is happening to the town, or that such-and-such should be done to improve it, or people moan about the fact that their views are not listened to. This meeting provides an opportunity for people to have a say and to question political leaders".
The event is jointly organised by Independent Socialists in Wellingborough (ISW) and Wellingborough Labour Party, but will be Chaired by an independent person. Speakers to open the debate will be from the Labour Party, Conservative Party, Green Party and ISW.
