Video : Athlone Community Radio’s Christmas Variety Show

We are delighted to have received over 50 submissions from members of our local community and beyond. We hope you enjoy the diverse collection of talents as much as we did.

Athlone Community Radio‘s Christmas Variety Show is the first in a series of events supporting our 10k for 10 Years fundraiser, a year-long celebration during which we will host fun events to celebrate our 10th birthday, while raising funds to contribute to our 2021 overheads.

All donations big or small to are very much appreciated.

Any support given will help us to pay our bills in 2021 and keep our valuable not-for-profit service running for the community.
