New format for Mayor's Question Time this month

Bristol’s mayor, George Ferguson, will host his next public question time on Wednesday 16th July from 7pm at City Hall. The event is a regular opportunity for the public to ask direct questions to Bristol’s elected mayor on any relevant topic. Mayor’s Question Time is free and open to all but booking in advance is required as space is limited.

Those attending the event will be asked to submit their question on arrival which will then be selected by an independent person for a slot. Once the question has been answered the chair, local journalist Pamela Parkes, will open the topic to the floor for additional comments.

Booking is open now at

People without internet access can book by telephone on 0117 922 2848. Tickets are issued on a first come, first served basis.

Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson said:

“This will be the first ‘face to face’ Question Time after the local elections as we enter a new municipal year with lots of issues facing Bristol such as preparations for our year as European Green Capital, regeneration of the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, affordable housing provision, planned devolution to Neighbourhood Partnerships and the continuing work on re-shaping the council.

“I always welcome lively and informed debate about the issues we face and I hope this event, alongside my regular radio phone-ins, web-chats and twitter feed, enables my aim to be one of the most accessible of city leaders.

Doors open at 6pm for a 7pm start. The event will end at 8.30pm.
