Councillor Terry Richardson, Leader of Blaby District Council, said: "This event, including the ones being held around the County will provide an ideal opportunity for those interested in representing their community as a local councillor.

"We will highlight what life as a councillor is like and the positive difference you can make to your community, and we look forward to welcoming you to the event."

Additional events will be held across the County and in early 2019 for anyone unable to attend the 27 October event.
