Reminder that East Belfast Speaks Out is back again in Ashfield Boys School on Wednesday evening. An audience of 400 is again expected to hold local and national politicians to account. This year the largest executive bedfellows are being rested and other parties given a chance.
- Alex Attwood (SDLP)
David Ford (Alliance) has pulled out
- Stephen Farry (Alliance)
- Deirdre Heenan (University of Ulster)
- Mike Nesbitt (UUP)
- Theresa Villiers (Conservative NI Secretary of State)
Mark Devenport is back in the chair and will hopefully repeat the model from previous years which allowed a large range of questions – local and ‘national’ – to be covered by the panel.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
Open to the public and free to attend.
