Community Radio Conference and Awards 2021
Date and Location
A Date for Your Diary
Coventry will host this year’s free Community Radio Conference and Awards on October 23rd. The Coventry City of Culture Trust has been spotlighting community radio since the launch of the Coventry 2021 project in May, including The Sound of Cov, which saw eight radio stations from across the region work together to amplify the voices of local people both on-air and on stage.
In partnership with Creative Lives and joined by the UK Community Radio Network and the Community Radio Awards, Coventry will be welcoming community radio stations from across the UK to join the city’s stations for a day of networking, learning and engagement at the Coventry Transport Museum.
The conference not only aims to inspire stations but to also encourage collaborative working and partnerships between stations across the UK, with Coventry’s radio stations setting an example of the positive impact working together can have. The event has been organised in conjunction with the local community radio stations of Coventry, and the UK Community Radio Network, the new national organisation that supports, represents and helps develop Ofcom licensed Community Radio stations across the UK.
Following the conference, the Community Radio Awards will be hosting its sixth annual awards in Coventry for the first time, having previously taken place virtually in 2020 and Barry in Wales for the last face-to-face awards in 2019. More information and tickets are available at the URL, below:
