The John Smith Centre organises a variety of
events open to the public throughout the year.
Find out about our upcoming events.
The Centre hosts online Power Hours which examine a different aspect of power in politics and public life. From the role of special advisers to opposition backbench MPs, to Government ministers and think tank directors, we're spending 60 minutes with key decision makers looking at their early careers, the big issues they've grappled with and their hopes and fears for the future.
Explore our archive of past Power Hours, including our Director’s Cuts where Kezia Dugdale has summarised all the best bits from each event.
The bridge between students and the most seasoned professionals in politics, policy and the media
