Snitterfield Village Fête
Radio Warneford recently took part in the 2016 Snitterfield Village Fête, providing OB facilities.
The theme of the fête this year was "Carnival" and featured a huge assortment of stalls and attractions.
The fête played host to a Dog Show along with miniature horses, alpacas and bees! There was plenty of entertainment, courtesy of a display of music, dancing and workshops from Oya Batucada, a Brazilian samba band, with dancers and a local Capoeira display group

The annual fête raises funds for local projects in the village. Funds from the 2015 event went towards a new five bar gate for the Sports Club, a new porch for the Village Hall and to the Village Primary School for an extension to the Woodland Area and Sensory Garden.
Radio Warneford has a special magazine for patients and a brand new edition for 2016 is now available!
The magazine is packed full of archive photographs and newspaper reports charting Radio Warneford's development from its first studio in a broom cupboard at the Warneford Hospital in 1973 to its current studio complex at Warwick.
You can also find out more about the service that we provide including our most popular record requests as well as some of the highlights to listen out for during the day.
The new magazine is available free of charge from our displays around the hospital including the main entrance and in Outpatients.
