BBC Radio Kent debate on Olympic and Paralympic sport legacy
BBC Radio Kent is hosting a debate on the Olympic and Paralympic legacy in Kent and Medway.
The London 2012 bid was successful because it pledged to deliver a sporting legacy. Can this year's Olympic and Paralympic Games really help to deliver that sporting legacy in Kent and Medway?
On Wednesday 5 December BBC Radio Kent is hosting a debate at Tonbridge School's E M Forster Theatre on the future of grassroots sport and is giving listeners the chance to attend.
- Steve Backley, former javelin thrower and triple Olympic medallist
- Lydia Greenway, Kent and England international cricketer
- Ben Quilter, London 2012 Paralympic judo medallist
- Clive Efford, Labour's shadow sports minister
- Tracey Crouch, Conservative MP for Chatham and Aylesford and member of the Media, Culture and Sport Select Committee
- Tony Durey, athletics coach at Dartford Harriers
- Andy Whittall, former Zimbabwe international cricketer and head of sport at Tonbridge School
The debate will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio Kent Breakfast Programme on 7 December.
Admission is by ticket only. Doors open at 19:00 GMT for a 19:30 GMT start.
Tickets to the event are free and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
