We are excited to host the local Metro Mayor candidate debate live at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab!
Coventry University is hosting BBC Coventry & Warwickshire’s debate between the West Midlands Metro Mayor candidates on Tuesday 18 April. BBC presenter Phil Upton will be broadcasting his Drive Time radio show live from the Disruptive Media Learning Lab in the Lanchester Library from 3pm and will be chairing the debate there from 6pm to 7pm.
