Question Time comes to Dudley this Thursday

The BBC's flagship politics debate - Question Time - is coming to Dudley this Thursday.

A panel, members of which are yet to be confirmed, will discuss and debate topical issues at Dudley Town Hall on Thursday 7th March, with people from the borough able to apply to be part of a 150-strong audience. It will air on BBC One later that night, at 10.45pm.

It will be the second time the show has visited the borough, the first time being in March 2009, when Douglas Alexander, Andrew Mitchell, Shirley Williams, Toby Young and Germaine Greer were on the panel. Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for regeneration, planning and economic investment, said:

"We are delighted to be hosting Question Time at the Town Hall, giving us the chance to showcase the borough’s premier entertainment venue on a national stage.

"I look forward to a lively debate and seeing the people of Dudley put some testing questions to the panel on the issues that affect them.”

Question Time first aired in September 1979 and is now hosted by Fiona Bruce, moving to venues around the country every week. The show was previously chaired by Sir Robin Day for 10 years, starting in 1979, before Peter Sissons took over between 1989 and 1993. The debates longest serving host was David Dimbleby, who chaired from 1994 to 2018.

People from Dudley and the surrounding area can apply to be part of the audience at or by calling 0330 123 9988.
