A pop-up community radio station focusing on saving the environment will be streaming at Westival, a music festival in Manorbier next month.

Westival Radio is raising money through GoFundMe for three South Wales charities: The Pembrokeshire Coast Charitable Trust, who work to engage local communities with conservation projects; the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales who support the local environment, including running a wildlife centre in Cardigan Bay; and LION - a charity that aims to open up green spaces for use by people of colour.

They are also keen to promote local initiatives for conservation and are looking for three people or teams of people per day to come down and talk to them on the radio.

Radio host and event producer Elinor James said:

“Any local community members who would like to come down and talk about what they do in terms of conservation in the local area on our radio show, can email [email protected] or write to Westival Radio, 60 Stock Street, London, E13 0BY.”

Taking place at Manorbier, Pembrokeshire from June 6-10, 2024, Westival is an inclusive, intimate festival that combines world-class music with an unparalleled energy. Each year, the music is as diverse as the crowd that encompasses its community. The festival cherishes emerging artists alongside bigger headliners. 

Big plans are in place for this year’s Westival. Expect ambient chillout zones, more daytime activities, boat parties around the idyllic coastline and even surfing and paddle board lessons!

There will be plenty of music over the weekend starting from 10pm and finishing at 3am most nights. Westival is strictly 18+. ID will be checked on entry. Visit the website for details.
