Matt Cardle opens new Heart Cambs studio

X Factor winner Matt Cardle has performed at a private gig as part of the official opening of the recently refurbished Heart studios in Cambridge.

The Global Radio’s Cambridgeshire station has moved from Peterborough and back into the old home of Q103 in the village of Histon.

Cardle was joined for the official opening by Heart presenters including network hosts Toby Anstis and Nick Snaith. After cutting the ribbon, he went on to do an acoustic gig for an invited audience at the launch party, where Toby also did a DJ set.

It’s the latest Global building to get a refurb as part of the UK’s biggest commercial radio operator’s promise to invest in new facilities. Heart moved out of the Peterborough studios late last year, having been in the city’s Queensgate Centre for more than 20 years under its previous name of Hereward FM.

The Peterborough and Cambridge Hearts merged in 2010, with programmes from then onwards coming from Peterborough but the group retained the Histon premises for its Cambridge sales operation.

Heart Cambridgeshire Controller Chris Suckling said: “We must be the luckiest team in radio. Not only are we working for the UK’s largest commercial radio network, we are doing that from one of the country’s most modern, state-of-the-art broadcast centres, based in a city famous for its renowned university.”
