Community Broadcasting

Welcome to Radio Forest Community Broadcasting

You can hear our radio stations at hospitals across Essex, providing entertainment, music, news, sport and information 24/7. From outpatient departments to long-term care wards, Radio Forest provides bespoke radio programmes for people in hospital and in care. We are currently on-air at the following – St. Margaret’s Hospital in Epping, The Derwent Centre in Harlow, Brentwood Community Hospital and Saffron Walden Community Hospital.

Forest One

Forest One broadcasts 24 hours a day to everyone at St. Margaret's Hospital, Epping and the Derwent Centre, Harlow and is aimed at our younger audience. We play the best music from the 80's & 90's together with today's new music. We also have regular dance and 

rock shows and our breakfast show is presented by the legendary David Bartley.

Forest Gold

Classic Hits Forest Gold was launched in 2002 to cater for our older audiences at St. Margaret's, Brentwood and Saffron Walden Community Hospitals. We broadcast 24 hours a day good time oldies from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's with specialist music shows playing, country, classical, showtunes and jazz.

Radio Forest is run by a team of highly dedicated volunteers. We're always looking for new people to help and it's both fun and rewarding. If you'd like to find out more about getting involved please visit our website, where you can also find out about news, events and programme schedules.
