Sedgley residents concerned about current affairs will get the chance to put their questions to politicians, a top ex-policeman and a national newspaper columnist ,when popular show, Any Questions, is broadcast from a Sedgley school.
High Arcal School will be hosting the BBC Radio 4 show, presented by Jonathan Dimbleby, on Friday December 9.
The well-known news and political discussion show, which sees a panel of personalities quizzed by the audience, will feature secretary of state for defence, Philip Hammond MP, shadow home office minister, Gloria De Piero MP, former chief constable of Thames Valley Police, Sir Charles Pollard and Mary Riddell, Daily Telegraph columnist.
Headmaster, Sukhjot Dhami, says: “We’re delighted to be hosting the show here, especially in our 50th anniversary year and after having received, once again, an ‘outstanding’ Oftsed report. Two former pupils of the school are now members of parliament, so it seems appropriate that High Arcal should be chosen as the venue for such a high profile event.”
Questions can be submitted on the day, with around 10 picked for use in the programme – although the panellists never see them in advance.
The show goes out live at 8pm and is repeated the following Saturday at 1.15pm, followed by a 2pm phone-in, giving listeners chance to join in the debate.
Tickets for the event are free and are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0845 1550411.
