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.
