BBC Broadcast live from Sands End Arts & Community Centre

1 year ago

BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? broadcast live from the Sands End Arts & Community Centre on Good Friday, 7 April.

Hosted by Ben Wright, the panel comprised journalist and commentator Inaya Folarin Iman, Emily Thornberry MP, Laura Trott MP and Munira Wilson MP. Prior to broadcast, the audience of 150 could enjoy a drink or two at Walnut Tree Cafe and then the lively discussion started at 8pm.

The programme was repeated on Saturday 8 April, followed by Any Answers?  and is now available on BBC Sounds, if you want to hear what Fulham locals questioned the panel about.

It was a good test for SEACC, as it was the largest seated audience that we have had at the centre to date, and it all went to plan. We now have a stage, so will be able to accommodate future similar events.

‘It was a huge privilege to have been asked to host the live broadcast of BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? on Good Friday. We had a full house and a brand new stage. SEACC’s knowledgeable audience provided excellent questions ensuring a lively debate. An exciting evening for us all.’ SEACC trustee, Elizabeth Henderson.

Many thanks to everyone involved; SEACC staff, trustees and volunteers who gave up much of their bank holiday to ensure that it went smoothly on the night.  Thanks too, of course, to the BBC for choosing our community centre.
