The CMA is celebrating it's 40th anniversary with the 2023 Community Media Festival. This year we're bringing the party to Leicester, the birthplace of local radio in the UK.
DATE - Saturday 28th October 2023
LOCATION - St Martins House Conference Centre, 7 Peacock Lane, Leicester, LE1 5PZ
TIME - 9.30am to 5pm
THEME - Legacy and Tomorrow
CONFIRMED SPEAKERS - David Lloyd
The Festival will feature discussions on stage around finances and funding, SSDAB, Ofcom and Compliance, diversity and inclusion and the future of local radio as well as inspiring stories of volunteers who’ve found a career in the wider industry and so much more.
TAKE PART - We also want to invite you and your volunteers to showcase your stations incredible success stories during our event.
You'll be able to take to the stage as part of a series of 5-minute presentations throughout the day.
It’s a chance for you to share your station's achievements and the impact you've had on the community. You may want to tell us about a successful project you’ve run, a special radio show or an outstanding local event you’ve been part of. How about bringing along some young people you’ve trained or perhaps feature a volunteer who’s done something incredible.
Whatever it is, we want you to display your work on the Community Media Festival stage!
We'll have room for 12 organisations to take part so please register your interest now by email. Contact our council member Jason Rosam - firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's make this year's Community Media Festival in Leicester an unforgettable celebration of community radio and the amazing work you do! More details of sessions and speakers will be announced soon.
