CORINIUM Radio is going live at its new permanent base in Cirencester town centre this week.

The community radio station is set to air from the second floor of Bingham House on Friday morning, from 7am, and will run for three days to coincide with the launch of the town’s Christmas celebrations.

Local listeners to the radio station, which can be found at 87.7 FM, can expect a whole variety of programmes, including an outside broadcast of the Christmas lights switch on, local stories and an interview with Geoffrey Clifton Brown MP.

Corinium Radio producer Geoff Carr said the team was excited to be broadcasting from the station’s new permanent home at Bingham House and he said the move had already generated more participation from the local community.

"We’ve gone from pillar to post over the past six years," Geoff said. "Now people know where to find us we’ve had a lot of people showing an interest in getting involved."

It is hoped that with a permanent base, Corinium Radio may be able to extend its current twice-yearly broadcast sessions.

However, Geoff said that with running costs at £500 per day of broadcasting, finding the funds was the main obstacle for the charity.
