BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? will be broadcast live from the New Earswick Folk Hall on Friday 5 October – 100 years to the day that the hall was officially opened by the Quaker philanthropist Joseph Rowntree.
Any Questions? – one of the BBC’s leading topical discussion programmes – gives the audience the chance to influence national debate by putting a question directly to a panel of four leading public figures. The panel never sees the questions in advance; they hear them for the first time at the same moment as the audience in the hall and at home.
Chaired by Jonathan Dimbleby, one of Britain’s best-known journalists and broadcasters, Any Questions? is broadcast live on Radio 4 on most Friday evenings of the year following the 8pm news. The programme is repeated on Saturday lunchtimes at 1.15pm, and is followed at 2pm by the Any Answers? phone-in which gives listeners a chance to join in the debate by calling or e-mailing Jonathan Dimbleby.
Any members of the public interested in joining the audience for the broadcast can ring 01904 615957 or email email@example.com to apply for tickets. The number of tickets is limited.
