BBC Logo

The final day at the conference (Friday 24th June) will take place in Quay House, the heart of the BBC’s site at MediaCityUK and location of BBC Sport and 5 Live broadcasts.

Quay House 5 is a meeting place for the BBC drawing people together from Children’s BBC and CBeebies, Drama, Sport and Radio. The day will comprise a ‘Bazaar’ of attractions to browse, pause and participate. Two Keynote presentations covering Children’s TV and Micro:bit will punctuate the day. The Bazaar will include mini-workshops (15-30 min), discussion booths, demo’s and mini-skills training and a chance to experience what it’s like to participate in a BBC Radio Drama. BBC’s blueRoom will be open to see and try some of the latest media technology including newly released virtual reality experiences and the Micro:bit.

BBCR&D’s Mike Sparks will present the Micro:bit as one of the Keynotes and Cheryl Taylor, Controller of CBBC will talk about the challenges and joy of Children’s programming.
