This summer, we at Chelmsford For You want to celebrate the invention of the radio, as Chelmsford is known as the birthplace of radio following its first creation by Guglielmo Marconi in 1899! And so we are proud to be carrying out our very own ‘Radio Roadshow’ throughout all of August and into the beginning of September.
We have built an incredible giant radio that is currently on a tour around Chelmsford itself as we speak, hosting a resident DJ, playing song requests you send in via social media and being one of the most unique selfie pieces in Chelmsford’s history!
Make sure that you keep your eyes peeled at The Meadows, High Chelmer, our wonderful weekly Markets and many more exciting local locations as our big boombox is coming your way!
And why not get in on the chance to win a prize worth a whopping £100 by entering the #CFYRadioRoadshow Selfie Competition? To enter, all you need to do is:
- Take a picture with our #GiantRadio
- Post it on social media
- And tag Chelmsford For You in the post (if your account is private, please dm them the image to enter)
The competition will end at midnight on the 5th September. Ts & Cs apply
Chelmsford is a vibrant and energetic city, and from all the team at Chelmsford For You it is clear that they cannot wait to see all of you snap your picture with their giant radio!
