Deciding who to vote for at Elections is not easy, but having a Hustings where the candidates answer questions from the public can help.  Hustings are generally only held for General Elections and similar.  See an Electoral Commission booklet on the definition of a Hustings and the rules to be followed.

In Eastleigh, Kings Community Church have regularly held Hustings as part of their work in the community.  They held one on 13 June 2016, in advance of the European Referendum.  It was generally considered a success as four MEPs attended the panel, probably one of the few Hustings held with so many regional MEPs present.

On Monday 22 May 2017, a Snap General Election Hustings was also held at the church and again considered successful since all Eastleigh GE candidates attended.
