Young voters in Norfolk are being invited to take part in an election debate in Norwich.

The debate, at Open, Bank Plain, Norwich will host candidates from four national parties. From the Green Party is Richard Bearman and from Labour Clive Lewis, running in Norwich South. Norman Lamb, running in North Norfolk, will represent the Liberal Democrats and Chloe Smith, candidate in Norwich North, will represent the Conservatives.

The debate will be chaired by ITV's Jonathan Wills, with young voters able to ask questions. It has been organised by youth charities Map and Open.

John Gordon-Saker, chief executive of Open, said: 'Having hosted a somewhat rowdy BBC Question Time last week I'll be interested to see if this younger audience can be as vocal.'

Entry is ticket only on May 30 and open to anyone 15 to 25. To register, go to Eventbrite.co.uk and search Norwich debate.
