Venue advice

Some advice if you are in charge of the venue:

Make sure you can pick up BBC Radio Lancashire at the venue!! Either on a radio:
95.5.FM (East Lancs), 103.9 FM (Central & West Lancs) & 104.5FM (Morecambe Bay)
as well as 855 AM (East Lancs) & 1557AM (Morecambe Bay)
DAB digital (Central Lancs)
or online.

Think about how many people you are expecting at the venue: a small group can huddle round a radio, but as numbers of participants increase you will need some better form of PA. If you are in a public venue, eg a pub, where not everyone may be joining in, there will be increased background noise that you will need to overcome.

BBC Radio Lancashire hope to be broadcasting live on facebook from the studio. You might want to check that you can access the internet at your venue and have a display large enough so all guests can see the feed> Here’s a link to the facebook page: BBC Radio Lancashire.

Make sure you get in plenty of mince pies and mulled wine!!!
