About Political Turn The Tables

Inspired by the plight of hapless politicians harassed and castigated by journalists, Turn The Tables gives politicians the chance to wreak revenge on their journalistic foes in front of a live audience.

Journalists are thrown out of their comfort zones by reversing the roles of interviewer-interviewee. After hosting the event virtually in 2021, Turn the Tables made its big return in 2022, when the previous Chancellor of the Exchequer, now Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak interviewed ITV presenter and journalist Susanna Reid, while Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, Angela Rayner, interviewed former Political Editor of Sky News, Adam Boulton. Other notable guests to have braved the hot seat include: Boris Johnson, Matt Hancock, Amber Rudd, Jeremy Paxton, David Frost, Jacob Rees Mogg, Ed Balls and George Osbourne.

In 2023, we are delighted that Turn the Tables will return to BAFTA on Monday 6th March 2023, where guests will be treated to a champagne reception and lunch. Tables are £3,000 each with 10 guests. The event holds a "cash for questions" policy and the opportunity for you to ask any question to the panel for a donation.
