There will be a special online event on Tuesday 8 December 2020 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Charles Parker’s death and launch the annual student radio feature prize named in his honour –
The Charles Parker Prize
Charles Parker was a brilliant unorthodox radio producer, whose groundbreaking work in radio and community theatre inspired all those who came into contact with him.
The Charles Parker Day is an annual event to celebrate his work and the radio feature itself, its past, present and future. In 2020 the Day could not take place in April as usual due to Covid restrictions. However, there will be a special online event on Tuesday 8 December, the 40th anniversary of his death.
The event will focus on the launch of the 2021 Charles Parker Prize for the Best Student Radio Feature, and will celebrate his legacy through interviews with previous prizewinners and others whose lives he changed.
It will be broadcast online starting at 7pm on 8 December and will be available to view at any time after that on the Trust’s youtube channel
