BBC Radio 4 will visit Coventry Cathedral on Friday 8th December to broadcast an edition of its flagship debate programme, Any Questions? with a four-person panel drawn from the worlds of politics, journalism and social activism. Hosted by Jonathan Dimbleby, this edition of Any Questions? airs on the day after Coventry learns the final decision on its application to be awarded UK City of Culture in 2021.
The Dean of Coventry, the Very Reverend John Witcombe, said:
“We are delighted to be hosting BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? at our Cathedral. The building is the perfect venue for such a prestigious event and it’s a great opportunity for the wider community to experience first-hand how a live radio show is put together. Audience members will get the chance to hear answers to the big questions of the day and hopefully it will lead to some lively debate.”
People from across the Midlands are invited to apply, and the BBC is particularly interested in applications from under-30s who would like to put a question to the panel. The minimum age for audience members is 14, and attendees will be asked to submit written questions, some of which will be selected and put to the panel. Doors open at 6.30pm and the event should end at 9pm.
To apply for free audience tickets, please contact Matt Feeley at the Cathedral on 02476 521226 or email email@example.com with a postal address and the number of tickets required. Ticket availability is limited and they will be distributed on a first come first served basis.
