About

The UK Community Radio Network has announced the return of its National Connecting Communities Conference, which will take place on Saturday 19th November in Bedford.


It follows the sell-out Community Radio Conference in 2021, which saw over 150 people head to Coventry, as part of its City of Culture year.


Taking place at King's House Conference Centre in Bedford, the event is an opportunity for community radio managers, volunteers, and supporters to come together to network, share ideas and inspire the future work of the 350+ stations on air across the United Kingdom.


As in 2021, the event has partnered with the Community Radio Awards – which will take place on the same evening and at the same venue as the conference.
