Proud Sponsors of Eastbourne Youth Radio

November 15th, 2023

Brewers were thrilled to be the lead sponsor of Eastbourne Youth Radio, who have returned for the 23rd year. The radio show airs between the 15th-17th of November, representing 12 schools and colleges across East Sussex and involving over 800 students.

Eastbourne Youth Radio (EYR) returns to the airwaves on 87.7FM and online at Broadcast from studios at East Sussex College in Eastbourne, EYR sees students aged from 5-19 from local schools and other organisations, present their radio shows covering a wide range of topics – much of it live.

This year’s broadcast coincides with important calendar dates including Anti-Bullying Week, Global Entrepreneurship Week, UK Parliament Week and BBC Children in Need. Individual programmes covers all of these during the packed 3-day schedule.

Eastbourne Youth Radio is all about enabling young people to research, produce, present and perform their own material in association with community partners for a family audience. From this, they learn and develop a whole range of skills that they will find helpful in future life. 

Brewers Director, Alison Brewer said: “We are delighted to once again, support the Eastbourne Youth Radio, a very worthwhile project in our heartland of Eastbourne. We’ve seen first-hand the wonderful opportunities the project offers the students; developing organisational, technical and creative skills and giving the opportunity to delve deeper in topics that directly affect them and their future. We’re excited to be involved and hear what the young people of Eastbourne have to say!’
