The Holbeck club to host BBC’s Any Questions?

You could be putting your question to leading politicians live on BBC Radio 4 when Any Questions? comes from The Holbeck next Friday (3 March 2023).

The veteran radio show, which has been running since 1948, long before TV’s Question Time, is recorded live each Friday evening in different locations around the UK.

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 1.10pm, 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 Anita Anand.

The audience submits questions on the day of the broadcast and these are then sifted by the producer who selects ten questions across a range of subjects. Normally, four to six of them are included in the actual broadcast. One of the stringent and unchanging rules of Any Questions? is that the panel never sees the questions in advance; the panellists hear them for the first time at the same moment the audience in the hall and at home does.

On Friday 3 March the show will be broadcast from The Holbeck club, Jenkinson Lawn, LS11 9QX

If you would like to be in the audience for this recording you can get your free ticket from the club, or by contacting 07739 045541.
