All four candidates will be speaking and answering questions: Callum Anderson (Labour), Emma Matanle (Liberal Democrats), Andrew Selous (Conservative) and Andrew Waters (Green Party).

The meeting will be chaired by the Rt Revd Richard Atkinson, the Bishop of Bedford.

A Leighton-Linslade Churches Together spokesman said: “As a neutral organisation with no political allegiances it was felt the organisation is well placed to provide a level playing field for discussion. All candidates are invited as are member of the public, whether they attend church or not. The event is mainly aimed at adults of voting age but children are welcomed if accompanied by an adult.”
