Sunday 22nd March 2020
We have taken the unprecedented decision today to close the BCB building. As a result the studios will be off limits to all staff, volunteers and members of the public.Events have moved fast since Friday. (see our previous announcements) Bradford Council today launched its STAY AT HOME campaign, which means unless you are a key worker or going out for essential suppliers, or to exercise at distance, you must stay at home.
We intend to fulfill our role as a community radio station, albeit there will inevitably be an impact on our regular schedule.
In addition to enabling presenters to pre-record their programmes from home and submit them to us by email or Dropbox, we also looking at the best options for live remote broadcasting.
Please bear with us over the next 48 hours as we put all our contingency plans in place. We’d also urge you to stay at home, and encourage others to do the same.
Join us on International Women’s Day for a full day of broadcasting with over 60 women, reflecting on Bradford and the wonderful world we live in. Click here listen to our fantastic lineup.
BCB will be supporting young people to develop more opportunities for young musicians to perform live in Bradford, in venues appropriate for young people from diverse communities and backgrounds. Find our more about our Youth Music project.
As a part of a recent exhibition at the Science and Media Museum, our BCB volunteers were invited to talk about their lives and the various ways BCB has played a part in them.
