‘Bristol’s Finest’ is the theme as BCfm opens its doors to aspiring radio presenters, newsreaders and podcasters, as well as local musicians, singers, personalities, comedians, poets, and more.

The BCfm Open Day (Bank Holiday Monday 30th August, 10am to 4pm) is an opportunity for local talent and the general public to visit the studios and get on the airwaves, also to meet the team, grab some food and hear about the wide range of opportunities.

Speaking about the event, Station Manager Patrick Hart said “Coming out of difficult times, there’s a lot of pent up talent and creativity from across the city ready to be shared. It is also important for us to reconnect with our diverse listeners and audiences.”

BCfm Studios are located at Easton Community Centre – operated by the charity Eastside Community Trust, who are supporting the open day with their Community Event Funds.

CEO Stacy Yelland stated, “Eastside Community Trust hope the BCfm Open Day and other events we are supporting will encourage people to come together again to break the isolation and loneliness felt by many during the pandemic.”

If you would like to get involved in radio and podcasts, have something to say or share live on air, or just feel like being nosey, please arrive any time between 10am to 4pm.
