BBC Economics Editor, Robert Peston, is coming to our party!


Robert, friend of our wonderful compere Steph McGovern will be there on Friday night and will also be presenting one of the Awards to our inspirational children.

We are delighted to welcome him to New Dock Hall for what promises to be a glittering night of laughter, fun, courage and – probably a few tears!

Robert will be well known to many as a journalist, author, news and TV presenter. From February 2006, he was the Business Editor for BBC News and became known to a wider public with his reporting of the financial crisis of the late 2000, especially with his scoop on The Northern Rock Crisis. In October 2013, he was appointed as Economics Editor for BBC News but continued as Business Editor as well until his replacement Kamal Ahmed took over the post earlier this year.

Robert writes a regular column on the BBC News website commenting on the latest global economic trends and stories. Read the latest here:
