Xpress U is a youth radio/podcast activity for young people (6-18 years). We are using radio/podcast to enhance the wellbeing of young people, learn new skills such as interviewing, and have a space to communicate their hopes, fears and dreams for the future.
We are offering in person sessions and online sessions to learn new skills and to express your feelings and experience, whilst meeting other young people. You can showcase your passion for music, your talents in poetry, the arts and more .
Learn how to make radio/podcast and showcase your shows on our platforms and Derby Sound Community Radio Station, where we broadcast an Easter Show, Summer Show and a Christmas Show. We are inviting guest speakers and give you tasks to complete to create your own shows. We also work with other community groups and on topics to get the voices of the youth heard with special shows and podcasts.
Come along on our visits in bubbles to the radio station to get a feel for live radio. This is arranged in support with Derby Sound Community Radio. Tickets must only be booked for children and young people. Teachers and other professionals with interest in the project should contact us separately.
The session dates are 1st and 3rd Monday of the month (during term time) and times are as follows and divided by age group. Please complete the consent forms to secure your child's place.
