Tour the BBC Studios
Our Children’s Interactive tour is designed especially for 6-12 year olds, it is not about the parents, teachers, or grandparents (as lovely as they always are!). You can come along but we will be entertaining the kids. Without a doubt the best part of showing our younger guests around is the incredible questions adults wouldn’t dare to ask…“How much do you get paid?”, ”Why is the news so boring?”, “You look so much fatter on the TV!”….brilliant we love it!
We aim to inspire a new generation of TV and radio makers, to get them thinking about how their favourite programmes are made. You will step into the famous BBC news studio and find out how everything works behind the scenes.
The most crucial part of the tour is HAVING FUN our CBBC interactive area is packed with TV favourites Wolfblood and The Dumping Ground which are both filmed locally. You can also try your hand at one of our Horrible Histories: Gory Games! In our interactive TV and radio studio you can try presenting Newsround or would you prefer to be behind the scenes operating the sound effects?
The Children's Interactive Tour runs on Saturdays at 10.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm and in school holidays. It lasts approximately one and a half hours and is an ideal family trip out. We also cater for school trips, birthday parties and kids clubs. Whatever you do don't forget your camera.
