A trip to the 40’s at the Block & Tackle

Koast Radio joined the Block and Tackle for a great family fun day which transported everyone back in time to the 1940’s.

A great family fun day for all of the family with singing, dancing, competitions and rations from the era, with great displays courtesy of Station Entertainments and Blyth Battery.

The whole event was broadcast live on Koast Radio with our team of presenters including one of our teenage presenters Jessica Prothero.
