Pirate Radio Exhibition
Linked Image: Pier
Ha'penny Pier exhibition centre
The exhibition centre at Ha'Penny Pier is the home of our local radio exhibition.

There's also a chance to 'Meet the Pirates' at the Electric Palace.

Listeners and visitors to Harwich between 10th and 17th April will get the chance to see an exhibition about pirate radio off the Essex coast in the 60s.

Among the exhibits will be some of the equipment radio presenters used 40 years ago.

There will also be photographs of the ships and presenters, copies of play lists and examples of some of the merchandise like car stickers stations used to promote their on air sound.

Also on display will be vintage radio sets from the sixties period and before, and there will be the chance to watch live images from the LV18 studio.

Most of the exhibits have been loaned by the National Vintage Wireless and Television Museum, run by curator Tony O'Neil. They will be from his permanent exhibition housed at the High Lighthouse in West Street, which is open from Whitsun till September 12.30 - 4.30pm.

Visitors will also be able to make a short recording of themselves as pirate DJ's in the exhibition centre on Ha'penny Pier.

The exhibition centre has been kindly provided by the Harwich Society.

There will also be the chance to speak to pirate legend Keith Skues in "An Audience With The Pirates" which will be staged in the historic Electric Palace Cinema just yards from the quayside, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Videos of footage from those 60s pirate radio days will also be shown.
