CBBC stars including Hacker, Karim, Lauren, Katie and Rhys will be taking over MediaCityUK and broadcasting live on the Piazza. There will be a variety of games and masterclasses for children to take part in, including a Match of the Day kickabout, storytelling, farmyard games and mini-tennis. There will also be a CBeebies zone for younger children. We’ll be opening the ground floor of our MCUK campus and offering a range of free activities.

It’s open from 9am to 5.30pm on Saturday 8th July. You don’t need tickets, just turn up with your families to join in the fun. Events are free, but you maight have to queue at busier times. Colleagues, students and their families are invited to come along over the weekend and enjoy the activities.
