Norwich South MP Clive Lewis is hosting the 'in conversation' event on Saturday October 21 at an undisclosed location in the Norwich North constituency, at which Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell will also appear.

Money raised from the event will go towards Norwich Labour Party campaigning, particularly in Norwich North, where Conservative Chloe Smith saw her majority cut from 4463 to 507 in June's snap election.

In a message to members, Mr Lewis said: 'I hope that you can join us next Saturday. With events like this to mobilise our members and help raise the funds we need to get our message across effectively we can turn Norwich North red and give them the Labour MP they deserve.

'For a variety of logistical reasons, this event is required to be for Norwich Labour members only. The exception to this is that under 18s attending with their parents are not required to be members.

'Names will be checked against the membership list prior to the day to make sure that this has been upheld.

It will be the Labour leader's first visit to the region since June's snap general election.
