I've been helping to organise the Tintagel Carnival for a number of years and can say the addition of Tintagel Radio last year opened a whole new dimension to Carnival week allowing us to additionally promote this fantastic community festival, not only to the residents of Tintagel but visitors and people all around this United Kingdom. I have donated to the Crowdfunding and will be helping to make both the Carnival and radio station a success again this year.

The great thing about this project is the community, everyone has a story to tell and what better way to tell it than on a radio station that broadcasts and entertains the people who are able to listen. It also lets people hear and experience the carnival week for those who are unable to attend. A worth while cause!

Fantastic and worthwhile community cause. Tintagel Radio was a joy to behold encapsulating local community spirit and highlighting local talent. It was a joy to hear about local artisans with an eye opening insight into local life in Tintagel. Good luck and hope to hear you on our trip to Cornwall.

Raf. I just read about you suffering from man flu in PO. I have just donated 40 quid to the cause. Get well soon. Let me know if you are up for a cup of herbata.

So loved last years Carnival radio - especially Uncle Roly, that had to join the funding this year. Just wish there was some way to have you broadcast for longer than just carnival week. Hope you reach your goal so that we can tune in again from Spain this year.

If you are in a band, orchestra or theatrical group and have a CD of your own original work, we will play it on Tintagel Carnival Radio during carnival week. The only thing we ask is that the content does not include explicit lyrics, bad language or defamatory statements. You will need to post a copy of the CD to us. MP3 files don't broadcast very well.
