I am happy to announce that I have launched a competition with the BBC for young people in Hackney to help design a future EastEnders set.

Entries can be by either drawing (minimum A4 paper) or making a 3-D model of a shop, house, or location that will help make the EastEnders set reflect the modern, up to date East End.

The winning designs will be displayed at BBC Elstree and prize-winners will have the opportunity to visit the EastEnders set. Two winners will be chosen: one for those aged 11 and under, one for those between 12-18 years old.  The winning entry will be selected by myself and the Director-General of the BBC.

The deadline for submission is the 30th July 2019. Please make sure the following details are included: name, school, birthdate, home address, a contact email address and phone number.

Please post all entries to

Office of Meg Hiller MP

House of Commons
