DJ Westwood judges local open mic show

BBC Radio 1’s Tim Westwood visited Hackney Community College (HCC) on 4 July to see some burgeoning talent.

The 54-year-old DJ praised the talent on stage and tweeted support from the audience as he watched the Hoxton college's annual SummerFest, a platform for its student artists, designers and creatives.

The event was a showcase for students and also an opportunity for potential new recruits to learn more about the Falkirk Street campus and the courses on offer.

In other activities on the day, catering students helped visitors to ice cakes and language learners led interactive games.

An open mic contest, run in conjunction with youth organisation Rising Tide, offered a recording studio session and £100 as prizes. Johndit Dimbu and Estelle Lavard were the talented winners.

College principal Ian Ashman said: “It was a superb showcase of our students’ talents. I’m very proud of what they have achieved this year and this was a great opportunity to show off the high quality of our students’ work.

“Having Tim Westwood as our VIP guest, taking the time to talk to students and taking a real interest in their achievements, made it even more special.”
