Fab Fest

Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July at the The Old Tramway, Shipston Street. More details here.

If you didn't manage to come and meet us at the River Festival this year, you have a second chance as we will be at the FabFest throughout the entire event. Drop by and talk to the team, on air or just to tell us what a great time you are having. You can make a dedication or talk to us about doing a programme on Welcombe Radio or tell us about a community event you think we should attend. See you there!

This means that programmes will be repeated at fixed times and days throughout the week. Keep watching this space for more information and an announcement of the launch of a new programme schedule.

Also a big THANK YOU to everyone who donated in return for a donation and to everyone we interviewed whether it was live on air or recorded. We edited everything together into one big River Festival Show which you can hear at every evening for a week at the times displayed above.
