Sophie Rich, SkyNews presenter, will be hosting the informal hustings tonight. It will last for approximately one hour and we are informed that it is the NUS equivalent of “standing up in the pub”. Formal hustings will take place tomorrow.
We sit here eagily awaiting the start with four empty stands before us, somewhat akin to the general election debates of 2010.
The hall is aranged like the globe theatre, around a central stage, and towers three stories high. Dimly lit with load music, this hall is a far cry from the main conference hall.
