We have teamed up with the I, Too, Am Human team who will be launching their campaign to a bigger scale on 7th May at our show!

The team behind this unique campaign were inspired to make a positive difference after travelling to Calais, France last year. Armed with only a camera and a simple message, the ‘I Too Am Human’ team have created a collection of powerful photographs with diverse narratives on the plight of refugees. Their goal is to humanise the stories of refugees, so that we as a society can see them & identify with them as people who have families, dreams and aspirations, instead of seeing them as a threat to our way of life. We are very excited and cannot wait for you to see their powerful work.

Join us on Sunday 7th May at Park Theatre, London, to learn more about the journeys, sacrifices, hopes & dreams of 10 inspirational people!

Do you have strong political views that you would like to express? Are you concerned about the future post Brexit? If you answered 'YES', check out this opportunity (see below) to be part of new pilot debate TV show!

House of Commoners will allow the public to take over from the politicians for the day and discuss the issues they really care about. We’ll let 100 people – 50 on either side of the “green benches” - debate four subjects close to their hearts, over an hour. Audience members with a keen personal interest or expertise in a given subject (say the NHS or housing) will start off the debate with a 30 second or so impassioned speech on their point of view. Someone from the other side of the “house” will also be prepared to respond with the opposite view, before the Speaker opens out the debate to the backbenchers. The subjects will be decided in advance, based on the audience consensus. They will reflect the news agenda of the week, and if there’s a big breaking story on the day of the show, we’ll try to reflect that in the debate.
