Chapel FM – Musicathon

The 7th Chapel FM Musicathon
3pm Saturday 10th December to 3pm Sunday 11th December
24 hours of music; all live, all local, non-stop

It’s a totally mad event and totally marvellous. Back in 2009 it was the first thing we ever did when we came across the beautiful (but at that point derelict) Old Methodist Chapel in Seacroft.

Hundreds of musicians have heeded the call again and will be heading to Chapel FM in the second weekend in December to play in our seventh annual musicathon. The music starts at 3pm on Saturday 10th December as part of the fabulous Seacroft Winter Gala, but when the Gala ends the musicians keep playing, all the way through the night and the next morning through til 3pm on the Sunday. Everything from pop to folk, jazz to opera, funk to yodelling…we welcome it all!

The whole thing is broadcast live on and this year video of each act will be streamed through Facebook Live.

And for anyone living in East Leeds, we welcome people to come and be part of the studio audience in the fabulous radio theatre. Those musicians need your support! The full 24-hour schedule will be up on our website in the week before the musicathon but you are welcome anytime (feel free to bring pajamas!)

It’s our way of warming up for Christmas! Be part of it…
