Voters in St Albans will have a chance to quiz candidates ahead of the General Election at a hustings later this month.

St Albans Cathedral will host the event on Wednesday, June 19, which will see the six candidates vying to be your next MP face off.

The candidates standing in St Albans on July 4 are Daisy Cooper (Liberal Democrats, incumbent MP from the last Parliament), James Spencer (Conservative), Sophia Adams Bhatti (Labour), Simon Grover (Green Party), John Dowdle (Reform UK) and Stewart Satterly (Social Democratic Party).

Ms Cooper won the seat from the Conservatives in 2019 with a majority of just over 6,000.

For those unable to make it in person, the hustings will also be livestreamed on YouTube on the St Albans Cathedral's channel.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story stated that Reform UK's candidate for St Albans would be Sam Woodruff because this was the understanding at the time. However, since the final list of all parliamentary candidates was announced on June 7, we can confirm the Reform UK candidate is John Dowdle. We are happy to clarify the situation
