Consett is lucky to be one of the few remaining towns with a definite sense of community spirit. This “village mentality” has lead to our town having a close community with people who truly care about the area. A new online radio show named The Works is looking to be the soundtrack to this community revival. Starring former Metro Radio presenter Brian Clough, The Works is an innovative fortnightly radio style podcast looking at Consett past and present with some great music in between.
Hailing from the local area, the guys at The Works have a unique and interesting idea to help bring the community ever closer through fortnightly online sessions, available through The Works website. This innovative show takes a look at the past, present and future of Consett whilst talking to the people who make Consett the town it is today. Influential and important figures of the town’s population will be making appearances on the show to discuss what Consett means to them. You can be sure that the shows will be filled with great music and intelligent conversation.
Over the December period, the Works will be running a special Christmas broadcast dedicated to the spreading of Christmas cheer around the area. On December 21st, the people of Consett past and present will be taking over the airwaves to make their Christmas message heard. This means people who have family based in the area but are elsewhere during the festive period can still let their message be heard. Don’t hesitate to get in touch on the email below if you want to get involved in the special Christmas edition of The Works.
