Sound Women will hold workshops which will give hands-on experience of interviewing, recording, vox popping and will also look beyond the presenting role to the range of skills that fit into the radio industry, from being in front of the microphone to organising the team behind it.

As well as this there will be the chance to listen to high profile women from a range of industries talk about their jobs and the chance to find out about getting into education, employment or training with information and advice on apprenticeships and business start up support.

School children from Whalley Range High School and the Manchester Coperative Academy will be showcasing their work on their timeline project of women’s history which includes famous women as well as personal stories from women in their families.
