The University of Sunderland will host the programme on Friday, February 28, at the Sir Tom Cowie Lecture Theatre, at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s.

The panel show features personalities from the worlds of politics, media and elsewhere discussing topical issues.

Although the panel is yet to be announced, a limited number of tickets are now available to members of the public who would like to watch and take part in the broadcast.

The programme will be hosted by BBC political correspondent Chris Mason, who took over the show from long-term presenter Jonathan Dimbleby last year.

The former BBC Radio Newcastle journalist recalls watching an episode of the show early in his career, adding: “If someone then had told me that I would be the first person on Mars and/or the next presenter of Any Questions?, I would have regarded either option as equally absurd.”

Members of the public will also have the opportunity to submit a question to the panel on arrival although they must be willing to read the question in front of a live audience.

Free parking will be available on campus for the evening.

Those attending are asked to arrive in good time, from 6pm, and have their ticket or QR code ready to be scanned.

Admittance to the Lecture Theatre will be from 6.30pm, with doors closing at 7.20pm.

Tickets are free but limited to two per booking and further details are available at www.eventbrite.co.uk.
