BBC Arts Drinks

Tue 12 Jun / 19:00 – 21:00 / Tamper

A chance to meet the BBC Arts Commissioning team. Authored arts documentaries have flourished at the BBC for as long as they have existed, and the world’s longest running arts strand Arena is a byword for excellence, originality and maverick wit. BBC Arts invites you to celebrate this heritage and offers the chance for creative arts documentary makers to discuss ideas with its Commissioning team in a relaxed environment.
