Bristol Mayor George Ferguson to hold first public question time event.
The event will be held in the Conference Hall and admittance will be on a 'first come, first served' basis. Doors will be open from 5.30pm.
The Mayor will respond to questions from the floor, taking as many as possible between 6pm and 7pm.
Following the formal question time, members of the public are invited to remain until 8pm for an informal opportunity where the Mayor will mingle and speak with as many people as possible.
The event will be webcast live and will be available for six months afterwards.
Mayor George Ferguson said: "I am hoping for a good turn-out for this first public question time event, and am sure I'll be kept on my toes. I want to use these sessions to hear people's concerns and ideas for how we can make this great city even better, what works and what needs improving. This forum is not for politicians or political pressure groups who have other opportunities to engage but for genuine individual citizens."
