Mayor’s Question Time in Dec 2014
Bristol’s mayor, George Ferguson, will host his next public question time on Thursday 12 March from 7pm at At Bristol Science Centre, Harbourside.
The event is a regular opportunity for the public to ask 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 complete a question form on the night and an independent facilitator will choose a broad range of issues to be put to the Mayor, including popular hot topics. Following this session, there will be an open forum for any further issues that haven’t already been covered. The Mayor will not know the questions beforehand.
Doors open at 6pm for a 7pm start. Those wanting to submit questions are recommended to arrive in good time before the 7pm start. The event will end at 8.15pm.
Mayor’s Question Time is part of a range of outreach activities undertaken by the Mayor to engage with and listen to Bristol citizens including regular radio phones–ins, community visits and ASK George webchats.
The final Make Sunday Special event of 2014 took place last Sunday (7th September) on the streets of the Old City and attracted many people to a mix of live music, entertainment, circus performers, fun and activity on our streets. The event completed a monthly run of five events in 2014 beginning in May.
We’d now like to review how successful these events have been and would love to hear your views on Make Sunday Special
Take part in our 2014 evaluation by completing our short survey
We’re interested in the views of people who attended the events and those who didn’t attend one of the dates but would still like to give their views. As with our 2013 evaluation, we’ll be publishing a summary of the findings as we consider how to move forward with the initiative in 2015.
Make Sunday Special in 2014 included some memorable moments and partnered with other initiatives such as Luke Jerram’s Park & Slide on Park Street which attracted tens of thousands of people and secured national and international coverage for Bristol. June’s event combined with Park on Park Street – an initiative of the traders of the street – and also attracted thousands of people and much acclaim.
Make Sunday Special is a mayoral initiative which draws on successful experiences from other world cities of closing streets to traffic and opening streets to people, culture, new experiences and fun. The events aim to work closely with local businesses to ensure they also benefit from the thousands of people these events can attract to help boost Bristol’s economy
Thank you for your views in our survey. We look forward to reading them.
