Radio Festival postponed to June 21st

Posted 23 May 2017, 3.39am edt

Radio Festival, due to take place today (May 23rd) at the British Library, has been postponed due to the terrible events which took place last night in Manchester.

Roger Cutsforth, Chief Executive of Radio Academy and organisers of the Radio Festival said: “We have taken the difficult decision to postpone today’s festival following the very tragic events which took place last night in Manchester. Firstly, our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of last night’s tragedy, and due to the sheer number of people from the industry who have been called back to their desks to report on the incident, and the many attendees attempting to travel, we have decided to re-schedule the event for later this year.”

Ticket holders are being asked to hang onto their tickets and Radio Academy will make contact with all those who were attending to advise of future arrangements.

You can watch an interview with Roger Cutsforth of the Radio Academy explaining the decision.

Later: the date is now confirmed for June 21st.
