BBC Question Time seeking audience for Belfast show

By Mark Edwards

The BBC's Question Time will be held in Belfast next week.

The programme will be filmed at Titanic Belfast on Thursday, with the BBC seeking 100 people to be part of the audience.

The panel will include former Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers and Labour's Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary Owen Smith.

Show host David Dimbleby said: "I am very much looking forward to Question Time returning to Belfast.

"What really matters is that we have a lively audience who want to speak their mind.

"It's a chance for Belfast to get its voice heard, not just by politicians, but also right across the UK."

It will be the 18th time Question Time has visited Belfast - the last was in January 2016, when Ms Villiers, Peter Hain, Nigel Dodds and Declan Kearney were panellists.

People can apply to be in the audience by calling 03301239988 or visiting the show's website
