David Dimbleby and his BBC Question Time team will be paying a visit to Stockport on Thursday 5th October when the popular programme is broadcast from the Town Hall.
Travelling the length and breadth of the country, BBC Question Time gives audiences the chance to ask their questions to a panel of guests from the world of politics and media, and now the popular BBC show is coming to Stockport.
Stockport’s iconic town hall will be a stunning location for the programme. Sitting in the heart of Stockport the ballroom of the Grade II* listed building will play host to a lively debate that will be seen by audiences around the UK.
Anyone interested in being part of the audience can apply for tickets through the BBC. Go online to the BBC website at www.bbc.co.uk/questiontime and click on ‘Join the audience’.
Councillor David Sedgwick, Cabinet Member for Reform and Governance at Stockport Council said:
“It’s an honour for Stockport Town Hall to be chosen as the setting for one of the BBC’s flagship programmes and will be great to see such an important building in our town showcased to the country. I’ll definitely be tuning in and would encourage other residents to do the same as we see a spotlight being shone on our town.”
