The Presbyterian Church's headquarters in Belfast is scheduled to host BBC Radio 4 flagship current affairs network programme Any Questions.

Those wishing to attend on November 15 will need to register on the Presbyterian Church Ireland's (PCI) website.

The Presbyterian Clerk of Assembly, the Reverend Trevor Gribben, said: "I am delighted that the Church is able to host the programme.

"Any Questions has a wide listening audience across the UK and much further afield, and it has been for many people compelling Friday evening listening for more than 70 years.

"Coming two weeks after October 31, and what may or may not happen with Brexit, it should be an interesting 45 minutes of live radio.

"I hope that everyone coming along, including the technicians, the panellists and the audience, will feel very welcome."

Attendance is free, but people will need to register on the PCI website at www.presbyterianireland.org/events for tickets.

The warm-up begins at 7.30pm, with the live broadcast beginning at 8.02pm.

The programme was first broadcast in 1948 and it currently has some 1.5 million listeners.

The Assembly Hall at Presbyterian Church House in Fisherwick Place is the home of the Church where the vast majority of annual General Assembly meetings and other Presbyterian Church meetings take place.

It is also used for other special church meetings, as required.
