A call has gone out on the air for the community to join Source FM community radio to celebrate the opening of Falmouth’s BENOW Festival!

Falmouth’s ‘Benow’ festival with its numerous online activities and projects, will be opened by Source FM on Sunday March 7 starting at 12noon.

Source FM will stream live performances via Facebook and the "All at Parklive" YouTube channel and create a live festival experience thanks to the 'amazing' women team at Sans Paddle productions.

‘Benow’, meaning ‘female’ in Cornish, is a celebration of women and girls in Cornwall and this year the theme is ‘vulnerability’.

The festival is a collection of diverse and interesting free online events including talks, workshops, film screenings and alternative therapies. Source FM will also produce and broadcast 31 interviews with inspiring Cornish and International women throughout March.

Anne Bala, Source FM Radio Show presenter (Women Talking) and event organiser said: "The aim is to create more connections in our community whilst celebrating the exceptional women in our lives.The Source FM community radio wants to further support more women to make a diversity of shows either from home or in the studio when it reopens.

“Benow provides an amazing platform to women and when I heard it was happening again this year, I wanted to support it. Thanks to the funding the Source FM community radio received from a Lottery Community Fund grant to support this, I am so happy that we can.”

The Sunday event is hosted by Sara Baistrocchi the organiser of the Benow Festival, part of the Falmouth Town Council team and Glyn Winchester supporter of the Falmouth Art Gallery and a few of the Source FM presenters.
