I don't know if it's open house to the public? Interesting if anyone did wants to attend.

It won't mean anything to anyone who didn't work there, will it. There are lots of this type of reunion within the BBC and they're basically just that - re-unions. Egton House has been gutted and refurbed since R1 left, so I can't what interest there would be for anybody else.

I wonder if the tunnel still exists?

Probably right there Colin. Anyhow, the link is obviously to a pub, but there is no address, so no venue, unless you have prior knowledge!

Mark, you're going to have to research that one yourself matey! Smile The tunnel was very handy for everyone who worked at Radio 1 at Egton House in the old days.

It seems only two ex jocks have put there names to the yes list. I only came across it as it was listed on Radio Rewind.

Blimey, I recognise the faces of two people in those pics - both BBC T/As. How time flies............
