MediaCityUK campus, University of Salford

Salford Uni’s MediaCityUK campus is described as the place “where science and creativity collide.” Located at the heart of six national BBC departments and a mass of independent specialist creative, digital and media organisations, the campus is a space where science and creativity come together to deliver the big digital ideas of the future. Basically, we couldn’t have found a better venue for the festival if we’d tried.
