A question posed to the Isle of Wight Conservative MP, Bob Seely by OnTheWight about the changes to Universal Credit roll-out on the Isle of Wight last week remains unanswered, however, Bob has issued a release today (Tuesday) encouraging Isle of Wight venues to host BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions panel show.
Nearly seven year gap
The last time the programme, hosted by Jonathan Dimbleby, was on the Isle of Wight was September 2011, when Ryde School hosted the show.
“I would very much like to see this great radio programme back on the Island soon and I hope venues like church halls or schools will be interested in hosting.”
Bob says that although BBC said capacity would need to be around 250, “often smaller venues are fine”.
Venues would however, need raked seating (or a stage of some sort) and two rooms, one for production and one for a green room.
If you’re interested in applying to host the programme, more information can be found on the BBC Website.
