AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE
FROM THE OPERATORS
OF PIRATE MEMORIES:
2014 & 2017 were very special for us, as it was 50 years since pirate radio began, and closed in the UK.
'Pirate Memories' & the 'Flashback '67' Exhibition
attended a large number of events to
celebrate & commemorate
these important anniversaries.
We travelled hundreds of miles around the UK,
and want to continue to do this in the future ....
But to do this, costs quite a lot of money...
SO: .....Can You PLEASE help us:
We need constant Funding & Donations
to allow us to purchase further rare items for the exhibition, which could be lost forever if we don't step in, and also to show the exhibition at radio events,
once COVID restrictions allow.........
Fuel costs are always our biggest expense when touring ....
In fact, at least 60% of the total costs go on travel.
We also have the upkeep and monthly fees for this website, and the general operating costs involved in keeping the contents of the exhibition safe & accessible.
In 2014 - We attended the 'Radio Caroline'
50th Birthday event at Rochester in March....
A local private event in Folkestone in April....
Met with 'Radio Sutch' in Herne Bay in May .....
and we spent time in August & September
on a cruise ship, a lightship,
and down on the seafront at Felixstowe.
In 2016, we worked with 'Radio Caroline' in August,
and also gave talks at several small events,
on the subject of Offshore Radio & 1960's culture.
2017 saw us in Pickering, North Yorkshire, Clacton,
London and Felixstowe
with the 'Flashback '67' exhibition,
as well as continuing our talks to a number
of small social groups.
2018 once again saw us in Pickering, North Yorkshire,
On The Buses at Sandtoft, Lincolnshire,
and continuing our 60's & Culture talks around the UK.
We were only able to show the exhibition briefly in 2019, and of course, 2020 has been a complete disaster for everyone!!
However, we are NOT going away or giving up,
just because its 54 years since we enjoyed offshore radio.
We know there is still a healthy interest in the subject,
and we want to be a part of it....
We want to see as many of you as possible in
2021 AND beyond....
But most of all - We want YOU to see US ....
With your help - we are making it happen.....
If everyone who reads this donates
£10.00 / $10.00 or €10.00...
We can carry on looking after the exhibition and website for another month.....
(Running costs are around £35.00 per month on average)
