Is Britain's political culture undergoing fundamental change, or can we expect it to remain broadly recognisable in the years ahead? Are the existing parties likely to survive much longer - or are some of them already gone in all but name? Is our party system itself fit for purpose? Will British politics truly be redefined by cleavages on EU membership, and are we really entering a new era of nationalism and 'populism'?

Since the historic referendums on Scottish independence and the EU, it's been apparent that we're living through a time of great political change. Beyond that, however, few of us have a clear idea of what's going on. Four eminent political commentators, from very different professional backgrounds, are meeting on Thursday to share their thoughts ahead of the election. Come along if you'd like to hear them, and to share some of your own.

The event will be held in the Harold Lee Room at Pembroke College.
