Old Granada Studios. after it closed it’s doors for the last time as a bona fide Television dream centre in January it really has had a resurgence after Alied london took over. With the Corrie tour, vintage and food markets and now the ITV World Cup fan park.
I worked at Granada Quay Street for three years until we moved down the road to the shiny new Media City in Salford. Although it may have been a little tired you could really feel the television magic running through the corridors and studios. You literally didn’t know who or what you’d bump into day to day! I tell you if those walls could talk!
I think it’s fantastic that this building has a new chance at life and has not been knocked down like the BBC building on Oxford Road.
Old Granada Studios will be hosting weekly events, this weekend includes the BITE market, vinatge fair and the British Street Food Awards. Get yourself down there!
WOW, WOW, WOW!!! I can’t tell you what an amazing experience the BAFTA TV awards was. I wined, dined, schmoozed and threw some serious shapes with some amazing people.
More details to follow as i’m a busy bee packing for a Hen do but i’ll post more soon.
Luckily for me my Bank Holiday weekend wasn’t quite finished. I had one more day of putting off work! I had been hearing a lot about a boutique in Uppermill called Highstreet Jacker via Facebook and thought I’d go for a nosey.
After heading up into the hills I found Highstreet Jacker upstairs in a building with a number of shops on the main high street. The shop is well designed with a plethora of summer bargains in sunglasses inducing colours.
I was pleasantly surprised with the boutique, some of the clothes weren’t to my taste but there was a number of items I liked and the accessories we’re fab. I feel it hasn’t reached it’s full potential yet but I see positive things to come.
Uppermill is a very pretty place especially when the sun is shining. I would definitely recommend for a nice lazy day.
