Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 23rd-29th April

Hello! Welcome back to the Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard, our weekly showcase of some of the best content on the station for each week. We’ve got politics, we’ve got arts and even got The Beatles this week.

Okay, so we don’t have the Beatles live in studio – but we have got a fantastic, fun-filled week ahead and you can join us on the website by clicking that button in the top right corner of the webpage (you can’t miss it) or taking us out with you as the weather picks up on the TuneIn radio app.

Artswatch goes out Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm.

Whilst we’ve got loads coming up, it is also worth reminding you all that we are the local media partner this year for the Wandsworth Arts Fringe which is on 4-20th May. ArtsWatch will also be featuring some performers from 6:30pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as the other guests appearing on other shows across the station.  Wandsworth Radio will be broadcasting LIVE on Sunday 13th May from the Errant Stage at their Balham gig.( WAF opens on 4th May this year at the BATTERSEA CIRCUS GARDEN – a big top tent at Shillington Gardens, SW11 2TT which will be a hub for all circus events and a bit more (celebrating 250 year anniversary of circus.
