Formal opening for BBC Tees

The official opening of the new Open Centre at BBC Radio Cleveland will take place tonight by Middlesbrough FC manager Gareth Southgate. The evening will also see the announcement of a name change for the station to BBC Tees, as revealed by last week.

The building, in the heart of Middlesbrough, has been transformed from a dated office and retail unit into a state-of-the-art complex of public open spaces and broadcasting studios. On the ground floor is a performance area and separate learning suite which has already hosted a series of lunchtime concerts and live broadcasts.

On the first floor are newly-refurbished studios fitted with the latest in digital broadcasting technology.

Station Editor Matthew Barraclough said: "We hope as many people as possible pop into our Open Centre to listen to live music, contribute to our output, learn a new skill and find out more about the BBC.

"It really is a flagship for the BBC and represents a major investment in the region."
