From Sunderland to Cardiff, Edinburgh to London, hundreds of you entered the Student Radio Awards 2017 supported by BBC Radio 1 and Global, and now the time has almost come to announce who has made the shortlist for this year’s ceremony!

Presenters from Global will make the announcements on Wednesday October 11th at 8pm, sharp, in seven regional venues around the country. Nominations will be released on Twitter shortly afterwards, and then on this website later in the evening.

We always find that it is always good fun to get a group from your station together and hear the nominations live (with drinks in hand of course!) And because we know it can be a long way to travel, just to hear the nominations, the Student Radio Association make it worth your while by putting on training days within the seven regions so you can learn more about radio, improve your output, and hear from the professionals.

Here are the venues and events for our regional training days and nominations parties this year:

London and East Anglia – Imperial College London

Midlands – Nottingham Trent University

South East – Winchester University

South West and South Wales – University of Bristol

North West and North Wales – Media City UK

North East and Yorkshire – Northumbria University

Scotland – City of Glasgow College

Best of luck on Wednesday if you have entered! Remember to tag your tweets on the night with @SRA and we’ll be using the hashtag #SRAs.

See you there!
