The iconic setting of Leeds Town Hall will be hosting a special general election edition of BBC Question Time featuring leaders from three of the main political parties.

Set to face 30 minutes of questions each from members of a live audience tomorrow night (Thursday) will be the Leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister David Cameron, Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband and Leader of the Liberal Democrats and Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg.

Presented by David Dimbleby, other areas of Leeds Town Hall will also be used on the night to support the event.

Designed by Cuthbert Brodrick, and opened in 1858 by Queen Victoria, Leeds Town Hall is one of the city’s most recognised and celebrated civic buildings.

Leeds City Council chief executive Tom Riordan said: “We are pleased to be hosting this live special general election edition of BBC Question Time at Leeds Town Hall on Thursday.

“With the general election next week interest in the show is certainly going to be high, and we look forward to showcasing both the town hall and Leeds in general to the watching audience and all those present on the night.”
