QUESTION Time will go ahead in Bolton tomorrow – but not at the original planned venue.

The Bolton News Reported last month that the Albert Halls would host the show, six months after a controversial decision was made to move filming to London.

The day after the announcement, it was revealed that the weekly BBC One debate would no longer be held at the Victoria Square venue, but a new location had not been announced at the time of publication.

Those with tickets will now be able to join the panel of politicians at the Bolton Whites Hotel at the University of Bolton Stadium instead.

The BBC were initially granted permission to host the event in the town centre, but they were forced to look for a new venue as the show will be filmed at the same time as the Christmas lights are being switched on.

Bolton Council have said that hosting the two events simultaneously would be logistically “impossible”

The panel show was original due to air from the Albert Halls on April 4, but it was broadcast from Dulwich instead.

The initial switch was made to allow politicians attending Brexit debates at Westminster to take part, but the decision sparked accusations of bias.

Some social media users said that moving filming from Bolton, where 58% voted to leave the EU, ensured a pro-EU audience in remain-voting London.

Bolton West MP, Chris Green raised the issue in Parliament where he accused the national broadcaster of failing to represent the north of England.

The programme may still be contacting applicants considered for a spot in the audience until the end of today.

Fiona Bruce will present Question Time from Bolton at 10.45pm on Thursday November 21 on BBC One.
