Knowle West Media Centre opened its doors this morning with tours of its straw bale eco building - and a toy workshop. Youngsters were entertained by the Arts team which showed them how to create new toys from old, broken and discarded ones. The Forgotten Toys Compendium is encouraging people to look in their lofts, sheds and garages for toys and games which can be re-used and re-purposed. The Media Centre was one of 70 charities, businesses and buildings opening up to let the public have a peek behind-the-scenes at the work it does. It was reported to be the most popular Open Doors yet - with thousands turning out in the sunshine to view buildings across the city.
