Submit An Event

If you have an event and it is taking place in Shaftesbury or the surrounding villages, you can  submit details for publication on ThisIsAlfred.com using the form below. We’ll feature it on our social media channels too. There is no charge.

If you have a photograph to illustrate your event, you can add it too. Please make sure it is your picture or you have the permission of the person who took it. We’ll even put your event on a map to help people who need directions.

When you have entered your event details, you can choose to record a short audio message about it, which we might include on our podcast. When the Alfred FM radio station starts, these recordings will be played on air to promote your event. We are unable to transcribe audio messages, so all events needs to be submitted in writing first, even if you are making an audio recording.

We use a system called Speakpipe, where you can record a short message directly from your smart phone, tablet or computer. It gives you a chance to encourage people to attend your event. You should already have filled in the form to tell us where and when your event takes place.

Please use the Speakpipe message to excite people about your occasion. Tell us…

  • Why your event will be so good
  • What’s unique about it
  • Why should people come to it
  • If this is a fundraiser, why this is event is important to you
  • How the money raised will make a difference

If you’re unhappy with your first recording, don’t worry! You can listen back to it, re-set the recording and do it again – until you’re satisfied. And remember to introduce yourself and tell us your name, so people will know who is speaking when you appear on the podcast! To record your message click ‘Start recording’ below.
