The Radio Academy’s Radio Festival taking place at the Lowry in Salford and is a great way to meet people who work in radio. Full details of the event are on the Festival website http://www.radioacademy.org/events/radio-festival-2012/
To help students who want to work in Radio, the organisers have released a limited number of special ‘Student Rate’ tickets for The Jeremy Vine Masterclass on Monday 12thNovember at 17:30. See details at : http://www.radioacademy.org/events/radio-festival-2012/masterclass-with-jeremy-vine/ This means that seats, including access to the drinks reception associated with the event will be available for £20 + VAT, on a first come first served basis (Reduced from £99 + VAT for none RA members and £60 + VAT for RA members).
This is a unique opportunity to see someone speaking who is at the top of their game in radio, as well as the chance to mix directly with senior figures from the Radio industry. For those interested please contact the Radio Festival team at firstname.lastname@example.org. The offer will only apply to those who can present a current student card. If you’re thinking you’re interested but not sure if you’re quite up for this kind of networking, my own experience of the Radio Festival is that it’s really friendly and those who go along are happy to chat about the work they do.
