During this year’s Uckfield Festival we’re going to be trying something a little different, something which we don’t believe any other local community radio station has attempted to do in quite the same way.
We invited a number of people to submit to us a selection of short 5 -15 minute radio plays, which a group of local amateur and professional actors then got together to record, here at our Uckfield FM studios.
We’ve been delighted at the response, with plays of all kinds being sent in by all sorts of people. These mini-plays are currently being edited and prepared for broadcast at 1.30pm each weekday during the Festival, that’s between Friday 10th and Friday 17th July. So be sure to listen out for them. They will also be available to listen to again, here on this page, after they’ve been aired.
As this is rather new territory for us to embark on, we thought we might have a go at producing one, longer play to “cut our teeth on”, prior to producing the mini-plays for the Festival itself. This was a lot of fun for all of us to do, but probably even more ambitious than the shorter ones we’ve subsequently gone on to record. Nevertheless, we’d like you to have a listen.
