Midsummer MishMash

Midsummer MishMash

21 June 2017 Entertainment

Summer Solstice.   Litha.  The Midsummer Sabbat.  It’s that time of year; that inspires writers, musicians, & religions alike.  The shortest night of the year, following the longest day of year.  And here, on Spark, we’ve been inspired too.

Tune into us for a whole night of programmes, all the way until sunrise (at 4:37am).

Through dramas, documentaries, live music programmes & experimental audio, join us for journeys in and out of consiousness; into different states of mind and states of being; into dramatic spaces; into imagined futures & remembered pasts; into search histories and synapses.

All constructed by our MA Radio students; Carey Frances, Catherine Peart, Emma Casson, Jonny Goldsmith, Nick Borthwick & RJ Phoenix.

Andy Cartwright, MA Programme Leader, is also here all through the night.
