Surf Radio Presents: Fern Sessions 

Live music from the talented Students on our campuses and from the local area!

Started as a separate society in 2018, Fern Sessions aims to promote the amazing music created by the hugely talented students that study in Falmouth! In 2020 Surf Radio took on the Fern Sessions events and we’re taking it to the next level by hosting amazing acts from the local area as well as promoting the work from the student bands and musicians that study here!

Follow Fern Sessions on Instagram HERE and subscribe to the official Fern Sessions YouTube channel HERE to see the highlights so far! Keep an eye out for news on our upcoming events across the Fern Sessions and Surf Radio pages!

Recording Shows:

We record shows in the SU's "Glass Box" meeting room and the Industry standard "Soundhouse" on Woodlane Campus!

Recording in the "Glass Box" takes place on Monday's Wednesday's and Friday's from 5 - 9pm and we have block booked times in the Soundhouse from 5pm - 10pm on Tuesdays and 1pm - 5pm on Saturdays! Recording slots are booked through the Members Facebook group and a member of the committee is always on hand to help you if you run into a problem!

If you aren't able to make a recording session don't worry! The amazing thing about radio is that you can make it practically anywhere, with anything! Some of our shows are already recorded from home so we are happy to help you get your show up and running, even if you're doing it from home!

The 1st hour of each recording session (excl Soundhouse Tuesday's) is a dedicated drop in training session for new members and those who want to see what the society is all about! Get in touch with us to get the details and we'll see you soon!


We try to organise a social each month for our members!
