Description

Title: Open House: The Workshop, Marjon's multimedia broadcast studio.

Location: The Workshop, Seymour Road, Plymouth

Date & time: 24 September 16:00 - 18:00

Plymouth Marjon University is proud to announce the launch of The Workshop, its brand-new multimedia broadcast studio facility housed inside the famous BBC Villa in Seymour Road, Plymouth.

The Open House will be a chance to meet students currently studying on the Journalism programmes, as well as the course team of academics, working journalists and broadcasters, as well as guest lecturers from industry. You can also have a go at reading autocue in our state-of-the-art TV studio, or get behind the microphone on Marjon’s student radio station.

Marjon Journalism and Sports Journalism students will get to work learning their trade next-door to the largest newsroom in the South West, which houses BBC Radio Devon and the region's television news bulletin, Spotlight.

The Villa has been home to the BBC in Plymouth since the 1930s, and remains a much-loved and integral part of broadcast journalism in the city – which is why Marjon is so pleased to be able to breathe new life into it.

Marjon students already work with experienced journalists from Broadcasting House in Plymouth on undergraduate modules focusing on television broadcast skills, radio presenting and voice training, online journalism and documentary film-making.

If you would like to attend the Official Opening please register by 18th September 2019.
