BBC broadcaster Jeremy Vine is to visit Huddersfield to present a live debate on the EU referendum.

The Radio 2 presenter will broadcast a two-hour live show from Café Society on Byram Street on Tuesday, May 24, asking local people their thoughts on staying in or leaving the EU.

Producers for the show say the debate will focus on local themes and how they tie in with the EU debate, such as Harold Wilson’s legacy and Rugby League.

A spokesperson said: “The spotlight is going to be on Harold Wilson, and we’ll also be talking about the textile industry, with a number of guests coming up from London.”

A webpage for the show says: “Is Huddersfield better off inside or outside the EU? Would Brexit bring the sort of turbulence that local firms experienced in the 1800s, or would it be a welcome boost?

“And what are the lessons from Harold Wilson’s 1975 referendum on Europe?”
