Event description

Description

Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham will hold a question time event on the evening before every Combined Authority meeting, in the area in which the meeting will be held.

The question time event for September will be held in Trafford - at Stretford Public Hall.

Partnered with key regional media, the event aims to highlight and answer questions on local issues, posted by members of the public.

This is your opportunity to have a voice on the concerns that matter to you.

- You can attend the session and pre-ask your question when you apply for tickets.

- You can join in remotely by either emailing your questions to questiontime@greatermanchester-ca.gov.uk or through twitter on #AskAndyGM

- You can attend the session and ask your question in person

Over the next twelve months, Andy will call a question time with each local authority in Greater Manchester.

The second event at Stretford Public Hall opens at 6pm. You will need to be seated by 7:20pm as we will be starting promptly at 7:30pm. The session will be live streamed onto @MayorofGM twitter feed.

We may run out of time to ask all questions that have been raised. If this is the case, we will try and combine similar or related questions together.

You must apply for ticket and submit your question for the event by Sunday, September 24.


FAQs


I came last month - can I come again?

We're asking that people don't attend more than two question time events in a six month period. This is just so that different people have an opportunity to come along and ask questions. Obviously, if you're not able to attend then you're still more than welcome to watch it online through the live stream and participate via #AskAndyGM on social media.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
No. But the event will be live streamed, so people who attend ideally need to be comfortable to sit for around an hour and half.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Parking is available on site but is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Nearby streets are resident parking only.

Stretford tram stop is a short walk away from Stretford Public Hall. Please plan your journey in advance.

What can I bring into the event?
Yourself and your questions. You're also welcome to bring your phone in with you, so that you can join in with the questions online at the same time using the hashtag #AskAndyGM. But we do ask you to put it on silent, so not to disturb the live stream.

We will be providing brews to everyone who comes - these will be available from 7pm until the question and answer session starts at 7.30pm.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
If you have any questions about the event itself, feel free to direct them towards - questiontime@greatermanchester-ca.gov.uk - equally, if you think of any questions that you want answering as part of the event, these can also be sent through to the same address.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
You don't need to have it printed, but an electronic copy of the ticket (via your smart phone / tablet) would be great, so that we can tick you off our attendee list and also identify if you are someone who has raised a question in advance.
