dock10 has received a kind message from The Queen marking our Tenth Anniversary.
The Queen officially opened dock10 in March 2012. Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh were given a tour of dock10's facility by Mark Thompson, the then director general of the BBC, and John Whittaker, the chairman of The Peel Group which developed MediaCityUK. The visit included watching high-tech rehearsals for Football Focus, meeting presenters in the suite of studios used for CBBC, and a concert performed by the BBC Philharmonic in the purpose-built orchestral studio.
The message from Buckingham Palace on the occasion of the Tenth Anniversary of our official opening said: "Her Majesty was pleased to be reminded of her visit to Media City with The Duke of Edinburgh, and was interested to learn of the work undertaken by your television studios in the past decade and of your tree-planting initiative to help the environment. The Queen sends her best wishes to all concerned on this milestone in the history of dock10."
