Bristol has four Labour MPs in parliament. Currently preoccupied with trying to deal with Brexit – which may take many more years to resolve – what do they think about the future of the city? What are their views about long-term issues of: social care; migration and immigration; the future economy in a developing time of automation; devolution and where it should go next; the housing crisis; growing child poverty and more?
Thangam Debbonaire, Darren Jones, Kerry McCarthy and Karin Smyth join the festival for a special MPs’ question time on the future of Bristol. Chaired by Jenny Lacey.
Booking opens Monday 2 September 2019.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers. As this is a free event – and in the interest of fairness – only one ticket can be reserved per transaction. If you would like additional tickets please book for the event again. To combat the high number of ‘no shows’ at our free events, we overbook by 20%. We ask that ticket holders are in their seats 10 minutes before start to guarantee their place. We will also admit anyone waiting without a ticket into empty seats 5 minutes before the start time.
We endeavour to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. The venue has a hearing loop system. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct.
We sometimes film and photograph events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
