Amanda Chalmers, left, who took over the reins at the independent Stratford Herald in June, is holding the Open Doors event at an Italian restaurant in the Warwickshire town.
She hopes the evening will result in feedback as well as possible story ideas coming to the fore.
A survey will also be handed out for readers to complete on the night.
Said Amanda: “On my first week in the editor’s chair, I made a pledge to listen to our readers and serve their needs as, first and foremost, a community newspaper.
“Two months on, there have been some changes to both the look and content of the Herald and, I’m happy to say, feedback has been largely positive.
“We are confident that, over the past few weeks, we have a firm handle on the big issues that matter to our readers — and we are working hard to make best use of the Herald as a vehicle in which to explore and challenge those issues.”
Amanda took over in Stratford in July after the previous editor, Chris Towner, stepped down after 25 years in the hot seat.
