The station will broadcast from the SERC’s Castle Street Campus in Lisburn and cover the wider community area after recently receiving a broadcasting licence from Ofcom.

It will broadcast a range of music and discussion programmes with a distinct local flavour representing the interests of all sections of the local community.

The event on October 6 begins at 7pm. It is free to attend and requires no registration. Full details of plans for the Community Radio Station will be discussed at the meeting.
