We’re heading to MediaCityUK in Greater Manchester for our June masterclass, where we’ve partnered with BBC Radio & Music and Radiocentre, the industry body for commercial radio, to explore the radio and audio industries. 

Whether you like to tune in, or you’re a keen producer, content creator or DJ, we’ve got you covered with a panel of UK radio’s brightest and best, including our host, BBC Radio 1's Dean McCullough. Dean will be joined by some of the industry’s leading voices whose experience spans producing, presenting, social media (and more!) at organisations including BBC Sport, Hits Radio and BBC 1Xtra, They’ll provide insights into their careers to date, talk about opportunities available in the North West and beyond, as well as top tips for those looking to progress in the creative sectors.
