The Student Radio Awards celebrate the best in student radio talent from around the UK, and offers students the chance to be recognised by some of the top radio industry organisations and professionals. The pair will be assisted by BBC Radio 1’s Gemma Cairney and Capital FMs Pandora who will be roving around the venue, chatting to the crowds, getting to all the backstage gossip and seeking the reactions of the winners as their results are announced.
