The project will include the support of local business’, current Hatch End High students, past students and both staff and governors.

Hatch End Radio

They’re broadcasting until Monday at 11am using at temporary school radio station set-up including webcams which will be heard and seen using – a website set-up for the event in order to raise money for the school’s production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat which will be performed in February 2013.

The radio station has been funded by organsations such as EMI. Money raised will go towards a shopping list of items which are essential to any production from batteries to more expensive items such as Microphones and Lighting equipment.

While its great to see radio being at the centre of their fundraising efforts – there seems to be some great fun content already this morning (Saturday) with great use of camera visualisation to bring the features to life in their pop-up studio.
