Question Time comes to Birmingham in 2023- here’s when and how to apply to be in the audience

Here’s your chance to have your say on the show

BBC politics programme Question Time is coming to Birmingham for the first episode of 2023. The show will be addressing some of the major talking points of the week with audience members being given the opportunity to ask panellists questions.

The panellists will be announced closer to the date, but they are often politicians and other figures from the media and wider society. The final Question Time before Christmas was held in Winchester on December 15. Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg was one of the panel members.

The Question Time team says they contact applicants on the Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday before the programme. Due to the high volume of requests received they apologise that they can’t contact everyone. 

 Question Time audience members will be requested to come up with TWO questions to be considered for the programme. Please note that everyone applying to be part of the studio audience is required to complete a form including personal information but any responses are completely confidential and only used for the purpose of balance.

It’s important that as many applicants as possible get the chance to be part of a Question Time audience. The team asks that if you have already been in the audience to not apply this time to give other people the opportunity. 

How to apply to be in Question Time audience

Members of the public can apply to be in the audience when Question Time comes to Birmingham through the BBC website. Question Time will come from Birmingham on January 12.
