Invitation to Labour Leadership Contest Debate

Posted: 29th June 2015

Labour-Leadership-Debate-FlierThe Victoria Derbyshire programme  broadcasts on BBC Two, the BBC News Channel and BBC Online every week day morning from 9.15am-11am.

WiRE Members are invited to the filming of a special programme in Leamington Spa on Monday 13th July – which is one of the official media hustings for the Labour leadership contest, with all 4 candidates

  • Andy Burnham
  • Yvette Cooper
  • Jeremy Corbyn
  • Liz Kendall

The audience of just 100 people will be able to talk to the candidates directly, ask questions and tell them what they’d need to do as Labour leader to stand any chance of attracting their vote in the 2020 election.

We have been asked to spread the word about the event and to make sure our audience represents as wide a range of people as possible with different opinions and experiences. (you don’t have to be from the area)

Anyone who is interested in taking part needs to be able to attend the venue in the centre of Leamington Spa from 7am-11am on Monday 13th July.

It is crucial that they are able to arrive no later than 7am as we have lots of rehearsals and warm ups to complete before going live at 9.15am.

Free parking will be available at the venue for all attendees. Anyone who would like to be involved in the programme should contact  Monica Soriano on or call her on 0203 614 3111.

It is an invite only event and we don’t reveal the location in advance, so people who are interested do need to get in touch with us as soon as possible please. We will then contact those who are interested in being involved for a quick chat before we confirm people’s places in the audience.

If you do have any questions please do just email or call on 0203 614 3111
