Church House Conference Centre, one of London’s most versatile conference and event venues, has been used for the last two weeks by the BBC for the recording of a series of panel interviews focused on privacy issues.
Radio 4’s PM and iPM shows used the centre to record and broadcast high profile interviews with well known individuals for a series called The Privacy Commission. The programme discussed the recent rows about injunctions and raised questions in relation to the existing laws, use of social media and the role of parliament and judges in making the law.
Church House Conference Centre, general manager, Robin Parker said: “It was really interesting to have the BBC use the venue for such a controversial and high profile subject. The panel interviewed high profile speakers and individuals such as Hugh Grant, Max Mosely and Zac Goldsmith. Ultimately I believe it was our location, so close to Parliament and the country’s political elite, combined with our peaceful setting that made us the perfect choice.”
events. Recently, the British Chamber of Commerce’s annual conference was held at the Church House Conference Centre. The conference was attended by a number of leading public figures such as George Osborne, the Chancellor, David Frost, director general of the BBC and other members of parliament.
Church House was also used by international media for the coverage of the Royal Wedding as its terrace offered a panoramic view of the City of Westminster.
