Carnival Feedback from the BBC and Our Chair

  • P1010605A big thanks to all our volunteers, contributors, presenters, performers and BCFM and anyone who made St Pauls Carnival 2013 such a fantastic success for the community and Bristol to enjoy.


  • I am so pleased that so many people stepped forward to contribute and from our broadcasts, BBC simulcast, many collaborations and partnerships, live stage, Mandela’s Hideaway, main stage and popping up at various street events Ujima Radio had a massive presence from you all which was commented upon by many including the Elected Mayor George Ferguson.


  • Well done to you all. Let’s continue to make every event and project a success.


    Roger Griffith on behalf of the Board of Directors
    Chair of Ujima Radio CIC


Emails from BBC
Just a quick note to thank you all for making today’s St Pauls simulcast so significant and so successful.

You were a real pleasure to work with and I sincerely hope we can work together again, in this or a similar way, in the future.

Best wishes.
(David Aston BBC Bristol)
Well done David, Andrew, Nia, Pat, Laura, Martin and everybody else involved.

Really sorry that I couldn’t be there this time, but I heard a lot of the programme and you guys captured the spirit of the occasion really well. You also worked together excellently to produce a slick professional sound on a complex broadcast. Well done.

I hope the rest of carnival went well and that you got to enjoy some down time at it.

Thanks again for all your hard work.

Great pix of a great collaborative project on a great day.

The carnival looked and sounded great and you all helped convey it to those who couldn’t be there (or those coming later to the area).

It was also great to see the stage area bringing together the three stations.

Well done!
