Radio 1Xtra

Radio 1Xtra is the BBC’s digital radio station specialising in urban music. Through our links with the BBC’s volunteering programme, Dragon Hall had the opportunity to visit the BBC 1Xtra studios with 12 of our young people. This partnership is presenting unique opportunities for young people to access activities and support from the BBC, with this trip coming on the back of our visit last year to their Tech HQ, known as the Blue Room.

Young people were asked to present a pitch to a panel before the tour (how can Radio1 Xtra expand their listeners) the young people were well prepared and executed the pitches perfectly. These are the opportunities that support young people for their personal development and also for employment in the future.

Dragon Hall would like to Thank Caroline & Hannah, also everyone at the BBC for giving the young people this unique opportunity.
