TURNING PURPLE BLUE
Inspired by the heroic efforts of NHS workers across the country battling to save the lives of thousands of people during the coronavirus pandemic, Turning Purple Blue for the first time in 25 years is our way of recognising and thanking the many many people working around the clock to restore the UK to normalcy. The campaign will form the basis of our renewed commitment to supporting and providing a service to the Durham community
In collaboration with a number of upcoming artists across the globe, Purple Radio's Isolation Sessions give singers the platform to perform in front of over 1,000 people on Instagram through our Purple Radio account. Tune in on Thursday evenings to see what all the fuss is about and if you're interested in performing yourself, email firstname.lastname@example.org!
