BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? show heading to Bridlington Spa this month
Bridlington Spa has announced BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? will broadcast live from the venue on Friday, May 28.
Hosted by the BBC’s Political Correspondent Chris Mason, Any Questions? has been confined to its London studios for the last 12 months.
However, the show is preparing to tour the UK once again and Bridlington Spa is one of the first venues outside of the BBC to host the show for over a year.
With a weekly audience of around 1.5 million listeners, Any Questions? is broadcast live on Radio 4 on Friday evenings following the 8pm news.
The programme is repeated on Saturday lunchtimes at 1.10pm, followed at 2pm by the Any Answers? phone-in which gives listeners a chance to join in the debate by calling or emailing host Anita Anand.
Mark Lonsdale, general manager at Bridlington Spa said: “I’m delighted that we can host Any Questions? joining the illustrious list of venues to have hosted the show over its 73-year history.
“It demonstrates the confidence the BBC has in our venue to be able to host a Covid-secure event in our phased plan to reopening.
“Working with the BBC we aim to broadcast the show live with an audience in our theatre, depending on the latest Covid restrictions.
“Tickets will be free and available on a first-come first-served basis.”
A limited number of tickets are available from 11am today (Thursday, May 6) online at bridspa.com.
