CORONATION STREET NOT MOVING TO MEDIACITYUK
 

Star date: 16th December 2010 

NO CORO ST FOR MEDIACITYUK

Contrary to the hype hitting the media today, the Coronation Street studios and set are not moving to Salford and MediaCityUK. Instead the new Coronation Street complex, which will vacate its Quay Street home in Manchester, is being re-built on a 7.7 acre site in Trafford, at Trafford Wharf.

ITV will have a presence at MediaCityUK but it will be based "across several floors" within the Orange Building.

Full details here…


Today, ITV announced that it will be building a new set and production complex for Coronation Street on a 7.7 acre site at Trafford Wharf, adjacent to the Imperial War Museum, subject to planning permission from Trafford Council. So Coronation Street won't actually be moving to its spiritual home in Salford.

The statement added that "A dedicated site has also been earmarked for ITV across several floors within MediaCityUK's Orange Building, providing modern accommodation equipped with the latest technology for ITV Studios' production and management teams, ITV regional news, and support staff from across the business."

The `Orange Building' is the also the controversial new base for University of Salford's media department which will open in October 2011. The University has already committed to a £30.41million fit out of the building, and has taken out a 25 year lease on 103,000 square feet. The rent is a closely guarded open secret. The University of Salford has recently announced 260 job losses to save `£6-£7million'.

Maybe The Star would 'call for Trafford jobs for Trafford people' if millions of pound of Trafford Council Tax payers money was invested and if the mag was called the Trafford Star. Is that a sufficient explanation or do you need a diagram?

Will the Star call for 'Trafford jobs for Trafford people' now that Corrie is moving to that side of the canal?

TENSION, 'BULLYING' AND POLITICAL DOG FIGHTING IN LOCAL ELECTION CONTEST

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?

CAN 'CLEAN' COMEDY WORK IN SALFORD? ABSOLUTELY!

This week saw a trial 'clean comedy' night at The Vine Cafe in Irlams O' Th' Height, with five comics wowing the sold out venue, and not a swear word or lewd reference in earshot...

"It had to be right kind of acts" explained organiser Sally Griffiths, as the mix of new performers and professionals pulled off the clean comedy night with aplomb (ooh, er, missus...).
