Pierfest 2017

Sunday 17th September 2017

On Sunday 17th September 2017, Hospital Radio Bedside hosted a day of fun-packed family entertainment at Bournemouth Pier!

After the success of last year's event, Pierfest was back - bigger and better than before!

With an eclectic mix of talented music acts, a host of children's entertainment, a range of exciting shopping stalls, and food and refreshments available throughout the day, the weather was the final ingredient - and it was kinder to us this year than last!

Once again, and thanks to our partners at Rock Reef and Bournemouth Council, we were able to offer you a discounted price on the first pier-to-shore zip wire in the world, as well as free entry onto the pier.

What's more, £5 from every zip ride was donated to Hospital Radio Bedside - and goes to supporting your local charity and helping to keep us broadcasting 24 hours a day to patients in our local hospitals.

Take a look at our flickr album to see some photos from this event.
