April Update – Mayoral Hustings, Cafe Discussions, Imagine 2027

The Cambridge Commons Mayoral Hustings
25 April, 6.30pm, Friends Meeting House

Come and discuss the future of our city with the mayoral candidates for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

In this new election, we’ll be using a novel, conversational format to encourage a more open, honest dialogue.

With Cambridge now the most unequal city in the UK, your say matters.

This election will determine who will oversee a £600m budget for the economy, a £170m budget for housing and the future integration of local health and social care services.

Book now and help us raise awareness of inequality:
