The weekly topical discussion programme in which personalities from the worlds of politics and the media are posed questions by an audience will be broadcast from the school on Friday, May 1 in the final edition before the general election.

The panel is set to include Labour’s shadow business secretary, Chuka Umunna, and the deputy leader of the UK Independence Party, Paul Nuttall.

In a usual week the programme, which is broadcast live on Friday evenings and repeated on Saturdays, attracts an audience of around 1.5 million, with the majority of the audience tuning in to hear the recorded version the next day.

Ticket numbers are limited and will be supplied on a first come first served basis. Members of the public interested in booking tickets should email, giving their name, title and postal address and stating the number of tickets they require. The maximum number of tickets that anyone can book is four and the minimum age for audience members is 14.
