Havering Asks[edit]

Havering Asks is a Question Time style event jointly hosted by Havering College and Havering Council.[1] The event is an opportunity for students at Havering College and other schools in the area to engage in discussion and debate with politicians and other media figures.[2] The production of the show is managed by students at Havering College and is incorporated into their curriculum and assessment. [3]

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{{when??} panel was chaired by BBC broadcaster Michael Cockerell and included panellists: political commentator and author of Owen Jones, Leader of Havering Council Michael White, Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate Bridget Fox and X-factor finalist Danyl Johnson.[4]

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.[5]
