Demonstration planned at MediaCityUK - Saturday 18th May

We have been informed of a demonstration taking place at a number of media-hubs across the country this Saturday 18th May including our MediaCityUK campus. The demonstration is to show support for ‘Soldier-F’ and the perceived lack of media coverage in the UK.

Following guidance from Greater Manchester Police (GMP), we have agreed to facilitate the demonstration on the 'Cargo' area at the rear of The Greenhouse.

GMP have estimated between 200 - 5000 people may attend, gathering at around 10am for an 11am start. There will be a number of speeches and it is due to finish around 2pm.

A number of extra security officers will be on duty to assist with any potential disruption to traffic but please be aware that journey times and local bus / public transport services may be disrupted.

Should you experience any problems on the day or have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Peel Media's security control room on 0161 855 6400.
