Various “bosses” of the UK’s heritage industry are to submit themselves to a Question Time type session in front of the public next month – but if you want to be one of the questioners, then you need to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) sharpish to get tickets.

The panel includes:

  • Baroness Andrews, newly appointed Chair of English Heritage;
  • Sir Simon Jenkins, Chairman of the National Trust;
  • Anthea Case, Chair of Heritage Link;
  • Tom Dyckhoff, journalist and broadcaster and
  • Dame Jenny Abramsky, Chair of the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The debate will be chaired by Martha Kearney, Presenter of BBC Radio 4’s World at One.

Heritage Question Time will be at 6.30pm, Wednesday 21 October, at the Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA), Portland Place, London.

To apply for free tickets or to submit a question, you need to email by 9th October.

People whose questions are chosen will be invited to come and ask them in person on the night. But you do not have to submit a question, you can just come and hear the discussion.

Tickets will be given out on a first come, first served basis.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
