Monday 31st March, 2.00pm.
The Society is delighted to offer members a chance to see behind the scenes at the BBC’s headquarters at Portland place, in a guided tour.
This tour will cover many areas of the BBC’s operation, including their World Service section. Numbers are limited and members attending must be confirmed by the end of February. No bookings will be taken after that date. The tour will last about one and a half hours. Comfortable footwear is recommended as there will be few opportunities to sit down.
GETTING TO BBC BROADCASTING HOUSE
Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London W1A 1AA, near Oxford Circus in central London. It can be reached by travelling north from Oxford Circus on Regent Street. Nearest tube station is Oxford Circus on the Central, Bakerloo and Victoria lines. The tours will start promptly from the Media Cafe off Main Reception – please arrive by 1.45 pm to allow for security checks, as we cannot guarantee late entry. Please use the Portland Place entrance which is down the side of the building which leads directly to the Media Cafe, and not the Main Reception Entrance.
This tour is limited to 25 places, and numbers must be confirmed by the end of February. We expect this to be a popular visit, and if oversubscribed another tour may be run later in the year.
Please note that no refunds can be made after 28th February, unless a waiting list person can take your place.
