About This Base

We are a crew of local young people, based in Manchester, at the heart of our great media and sporting city.

Our base is a creative production environment where we come to file our reports, express ourselves, recharge our batteries and work as a team to produce our signature content.

We’re supported by a team of experienced industry professionals who guide us on a one to one basis.

We have excellent links into our communities and look forward to making more.

This is Where Youth Produce!
