One of the BBC’s most iconic radio programmes will be broadcast live from a school in Corby later this month.

Every Friday evening BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? visits a different part of the country with a panel of four speakers from the worlds of politics, the media and elsewhere who answer questions from the audience.

The show will be broadcast from Corby Technical School on Friday, April 29, and is due to feature the Leader of the House of Commons Chris Grayling and Shadow Cabinet Minister John Ashworth, as well as its popular presenter Jonathan Dimbleby.

Corby Technical School principal Angela Reynolds said: “We are very honoured to be hosting Any Questions?

“It is a flagship political panel programme that gives people the opportunity to question leading politicians, policy makers, writers and thinkers about current affairs.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming such distinguished guests to our school and we are sure this will be a special event for the people of Corby.”

Any Questions? was first broadcast in October 1948 and has been hosted by Mr Dimbleby since 1987.

The minimum age for audience members is 14.

Tickets to the show are free but must be booked.

They are available from Corby Technical School on 01536 213100 and will be issued on a first come, first served basis.
