Radio Venus 2018

It’s that time of year again!

As BCB has done since our very first Radio Venus broadcast in 1995 (and you’re right – we were way ahead of the game ….) BCB is planning our Women’s takeover the airwaves on March 8th with a full day of women’s broadcasting.

So – what do you fancy doing? Which women’s voices need to heard? Which issues should we address? Which skills do you need to learn to make a programme? And who could you work with to make this happen?

Lots of questions – but let’s find the answers together! It’s all about having fun together.

Come to BCB on Sat 20 January, 11-1pm to meet up with other women and give us your thoughts. And of course it’s 100 years since (some) women got the vote.

Let me know if you’re able to come
Bring your friends too – lots of training sessions and support planned for new women.
