BRITAIN’S favourite local radio station, Radio Active, is coming to Somerset this May.

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the show first being performed live onstage; Radio Active is back once more on a tour of the UK. The show is coming to McMillan Theatre in Bridgwater on May 11.

The original cast including Angus Deayton, Helen Atkinson Wood, Michael Fenton Stevens and Philip Pope reunited in 2016 at the Edinburgh Fringe.

They reunited again in 2018, performing some of their classic and best-loved radio scripts, and now they’re back and better than ever.

Born out of a small sketch show created during their years in the Oxford Revue, Radio Active was originally written by Deayton and the late Geoffrey Perkins.It continued to grow at a rapid pace, being adapted for BBC Radio 4 where it ran for seven award-winning series – a total of 53 episodes from 1980 until 1987. The show then transformed into KYTV, the exciting BBC 2 television revival, and now it’s a live stage show.

Expect to be reunited with all your favourite characters, including long suffering radio host Mike Channel, original foodie Anna Daptor, and the accident-prone Martin Brown. You can also enjoy the cast’s original musical creations, responsible for such parody bands as The Hee Bee Gee Bees and Status Quid.
