This tour will be hosted by one of the few remaining staff members at BBC Wood Norton. You will see what the site is used for now and hear much of its incredibly varied history.
Due to security concerns, this tour is strictly limited to a maximum of 10 people on a strictly first-come basis. It will begin at 10:30, so aim to arrive at 10:00–10:15. It will end before noon, when the rest of the day begins.
Photos should not be uploaded to social media and, in certain areas, may be prohibited. You will be expected to provide photo ID. If you book and then can't come, please cancel, so somebody else can take your place. If unsuccessful in obtaining a ticket, register your interest in going on the standby list when you book.
Come and try these amazing self-balancing personal transports, controlled by your body movements. We will have 8 off-road Segway X2s throughout the afternoon. All riders will be supplied with a safety helmet, full briefing and initial training before embarking on a tricky challenge through a series of obstacles.
Come and enjoy free drinks in the Orangery Bar from 5 pm onwards, courtesy of sponsors, CVP.
This year sees the return of the popular charity raffle. This year's chosen charity used to be known as the CTBF. Its stated aim is: "Supporting people who work in Film and TV in the UK at every stage of their career and beyond."

The GTC Awards team has two possible extra suggestions for activities on the day:
We thought it might be good fun if any of those attending who own classic cars or motorbikes turned up in them. If this applies to you, please register your interest when booking your tickets. If there is sufficient interest, we will organise a 'Concours d'Elegance' near the Segways, during the afternoon.
A few years ago this idea was suggested by a member but we haven't really had a suitable opportunity. Now we have, so if you are interested in bringing along your unwanted camera gear to sell or swap, or you think you might like to buy something, please register your interest when booking your tickets. If there is sufficient interest, this will take place in the same field as the Segways, during the afternoon.
The GTC is grateful for the generous support of:
