About the event

Why be part of the audience?

Debate Night is the only television programme of its kind in Scotland. With a UK general election next month, there’s never been a better time to put your questions to the country’s decision-makers and public figures.

We want people from all walks of life. You might be a parent, a carer or a student? Perhaps you run a business or are a frontline worker? Retired, self-employed, unemployed or just starting out in the workplace - we need you.

It’s your questions, stories, experiences and opinions that lead our discussion - so we couldn’t do it without you!

Our panels are a great mix of people. Recent guests to join our politicians include authors Val McDermid and Alex Gray, columnists Owen Jones, Hugo Rifkind and Ayesha Hazarika, comedians Karen Dunbar and Susie McCabe, musicians Ricky Ross and Fish, Lord Sugar's advisor Mike Soutar from BBC The Apprentice and former Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Piers Linney.
