AN UPCOMING episode of BBC1 political debate show Question Time will be hosted in Brighton.

Host Fiona Bruce and a panel of to-be-announced guests will be appearing at the University of Sussex campus venue on Thursday 14 November – less than a month before the country goes to the polls.

An audience of around 150 will be selected to watch the debate live with students, staff and city residents all able to apply for free tickets to attend.

Laura McDermott, Creative Director of Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, said: “All elections are important but this one feels particularly significant, with Britain’s future in the EU still uncertain - so there’s certainly a lot at stake in this debate.

“We’re hopeful that those lucky enough to attend will hear and participate in a robust and impassioned debate but that participants on all sides will respect each other’s opinions and the right to speak their own minds.

“Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts has hosted a huge variety of events in my time here as Creative Director. We regularly host contemporary dance, theatre, music, film, discussion and debate. We’re happy to be hosting the flagship BBC panel debate again - last time they were here was in the weeks just following the EU referendum over three years ago.”
