Do you have a burning question about our great city?

Well now’s your chance to put it to a panel of experts at a new event called Ask York.

And it’s being held in the best place for a lively debate – a great York pub.

Ask York is a new discussion show from community radio station Two Rivers Radio tackling the burning issues affecting the city.

“Each month, we will put together a panel of local politicians, journalists, campaigners, business-people, academics and experts in all manner of fields to be quizzed by a live audience,” said station manager Jez Russell.

“This is your opportunity to ask questions of those in the city that are making and affecting the decisions we as a community all have to live with and to hear all sides of many contentious debates.”
