Incumbent Labour MP Tulip Siddiq, along with Conservative candidate Johnny Luk, Liberal Democrat Matt Sanders, and the Green Party's David Stansell will face questions from an audience on December 2 in the hall at the school in Frognal.

Ms Siddiq is defending a 15,560 majority from 2017 while the Liberal Democrats' Mr Sanders hopes that the party's policy to revoke Article 50 will secure an almighty swing to his party.

The hour-long event will start at 7pm and will be chaired by the Ham&High's senior reporter Harry Taylor. Entry is free, and those wishing to attend will need to book tickets through Eventbrite.

UCS Hampstead's headteacher Mark Beard said: "We are delighted to welcome the prospective candidates for Hampstead and Kilburn to the Great Hall at UCS for a hustings evening ahead of December's general election.
