VE Day 75th Anniversary

Saturday 15th August

Stratford Town Council, Welcombe Radio, Escape Arts are working together to digitally broadcast commemorations of the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day.

Our event will pay tribute to the tens of thousands of service personal from across the UK and Commonwealth who fought and died and those who were held prisoner. We will have a special mention for the brave men of Stratford upon Avon and all those who came back whose lives were changed forever.

To help commemorate the day we invite the people of Stratford and surrounding are to take part in to our 'PEACE POETRY CORNER'. You are invited to write poems and short stories about Peace and then we will read them out on the day via our broadcast (closing date 3rd August).

Chris's Quiz Night

Monday 8.30 - 10.30pm

As you can't go to the pub quiz at the moment, we thought we'd bring the quiz to you! We can't serve you any drinks, and there won't be any prizes, but Chris will still host a fun quiz which is open to everyone. You can email your answers to windmillquiz@gmail.com if you like, or just listen in.


Thank you rainbow

Everyday life has changed very suddenly in the past couple of weeks. Here at Welcombe Radio, we are adapting to the current situation. For the time being, some of our programme-makers are going to continue making their shows whilst others, for understandable reasons, are going to take a break. There may also be some minor interruptions to our output or an occasional drop in sound quality. We apologise in advance for this. However, if you do miss some or all of a programme, please check the full schedule to see when it is repeated.
