The BBC has announced that Salford is to become the new permanent production base and broadcast location for the Eurovision Song Content in the UK.
This result from the UK jury will be beamed live to the Eurovision 2022 Grand Final hosts in Turin, Italy from dock10’s studios in Manchester.
Salford is already the permanent base for a number of BBC shows, including A Question of Sport, Dragons’ Den, Football Focus, Match of the Day, and Blue Peter.
Rachel Ashdown, commissioning editor at the BBC said: “The North West of England is famously renowned for its unrivalled musical heritage not just in the UK but across the globe, so it is fitting that from now on the region will be part of the biggest music contest on the planet.”
Suzy Lamb, managing director BBC Studios Entertainment added: “We are so thrilled to continue building the expertise and skillset of our production hub in the North. It will be so exciting to welcome the global Eurovision audience to the North West with ‘Good Evening From Salford in Greater Manchester’.”
