The Light Programme

Saturday 18 November 2017

Before BBC Radio 2, there was the Light Programme.

Fifty years ago, on Saturday 30th September 1967 to be precise, the Light Programme was renamed Radio 2 and a new upstart, Radio 1, was born.  But for those who remember it as it was originally broadcast, the Light Programme has a special place in their hearts.

So this evening of nostalgia in words & music is the perfect way to let the years roll back and to enjoy an altogether simpler world of entertainment, performed by a very talented group of professional actors.

It’s all organised by our friend George Mulveny in aid of the charity Mellow Parenting (

Tickets priced £10 and £8 (concessions) are available from George Mulveny, Words & Music and the Church Office.
