Hustings for Frome and East Somerset on 2nd July – meet the candidates

Frome Town Council is organising the hustings for the forthcoming UK general election, which takes place at the Cheese and Grain, Market Yard, Frome on Tuesday 2nd July from 7pm to 9pm. All prospective parliamentary candidates for the new constituency of Frome and East Somerset have been invited to attend, ahead of the general election on Thursday 4th July. Boundary changes in Somerset, approved by central government earlier in 2024, have increased the number of constituencies in Somerset from five to seven and Frome’s former constituency of Somerton and Frome no longer exists.
