The United Kingdom faces its biggest choice for a generation in late June, and Prestonians need to decide whether they want to stay in or leave the European Union.

Arguments are raging about whether the Remain or Brexit camps are in the right, or the wrong, and we’re giving you the chance to hear directly from both parties.

A debate at the University of Central Lancashire’s Mitchell and Kenyon theatre, in Foster Building, on Thursday 9 June is open to anyone who wants to know more.

You will hear from both sides and have a chance to ask questions to either side about what they stand for and why they think we should stay or go.

On the Remain side South Ribble MP Seema Kennedy and Chris Davies a former Liberal Democrat MP and MEP will share the stage.

For the Leave campaign then James Barker, UKIP parliamentary candidate for Preston and independent councillor Adrian Owens from Better Off Out will make their case.

The debate will be chaired by me (Ed Walker), editor of Blog Preston, who will be keeping order and ensuring you can ask your questions.
