Havering Asks

Havering Asks is a Question Time style event jointly hosted by Havering College and Havering Council.[2] The event is an excellent opportunity for students at Havering College and other schools in the area to engage in discussion and debate with politicians and other media figures.[3]

The production of the show is managed entirely by students at Havering College and is incorporated into their curriculum and assessment. Students from a multitude of disciplines such as make-up, music production, film and TV production assist in the production of the show, while catering students provide the food and assist with hospitality events associated with the show.[4]

The event was first held on 20 October 2011 at Havering College's The Space facility and was attended by 130 students from 7 different schools within Havering. Last year's panel was chaired by veteran BBC broadcaster Michael Cockerell and included panellists: the political commentator and author of Owen Jones, the Leader of Havering Council Cllr. Michael White, Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate Bridget Fox and X-factor finalist Danyl Johnson.[5]

After the event a short promotional video[2] and a 'Behind the Scenes' video [6] was made.

A five minute video of the event was submitted to the BBC Schools Questions and Answers competition, which Havering won and hosted a live webcast BBC Question Time-styled program.[7]

Havering Asks is planned to run for its second year in November 2012. While panelists have not yet been confirmed Michael Cockerell has expressed a willingness to return as the Chair of the panel.

The Swiss R&B / Rap artist Jay-D aka Yung Fly or The Journey is also studying at Havering College in the Music Department
