 Tony Blackburn:

“I can’t wait to get out on the road with some great musicians and visit some of my favourite towns and cities, spreading the great Sounds of 60s across the UK. Grab your tickets, come along and enjoy a terrific night with me, featuring some great stories and some great live music!”

E-Safety Event - Wed 6th March & Thur 7th March

The Dark Web, how much do you know? This information session will get parents up to date with apps your children are using. 

When you think about Stranger Danger, are you thinking of a white van outside a school or a man with a dog that has just had puppies? This event will take that message and turn it on its head.

Unlike similar events this presentation will not be covering issues like password security or blocking software. The aim is to bring parents totally up to date regarding the apps their children are using and how they are being directly targeted in that environment by paedophiles.
