Trains, Trams and MediaCity

29 Jul

My feet are throbbing from yesterday, but it was so worth it, considering the day I have had being in Manchester. After getting to Manchester Piccadilly, and jumping in a taxi my destination was MediaCity. Turning a corner and seeing the BBC sign, was the highlight of the day, and seeing the cool new buildings. After meeting Jane I was given a tour of one of the buildings and looking out of the window I got a great view of what was and will be on the Salford site. I think the pics speak for themselves, on the size and view.

My visit to MediaCity even involved a tour of the Lowry shopping centre, where I had lunch with Jane and her assistant, so I know where the nearest cinema and designer clothes shops are too. Back on site I got a tour of other buildings and in the entertainment block I encountered the boss of BBC North, Peter Salmon! All I thought at the time was OMG! As people say ‘save the best for last’ mine was meeting one of the people in the recruitment team, who will be contacting me in the next couple of weeks to go back to Manchester to have a meeting with her.

My visit went by so quickly, that I was sad when I had to leave, and I thought I’d leave in style, by going on the tram. I had never been on a tram before, and it reminded me of a rickety rollercaster. Because I had an hour to kill before leaving Manchester I just toured the train station, found a sushi bar (YO SUSHI) and chowed down to some on the train out. I only hope my call back to Manchester will be soon, and something positive comes out of it.
