There will be live music at Widnes Library when Get It Loud in Libraries present Porridge Radio on Sunday 18 July at 2.30pm as part of the Celebrate Halton โ€“ Borough of Culture 2021 celebrations.

Porridge Radio are a British indie rock band, originating from Brighton. They were listed among The Guardianโ€™s top 40 new artists in 2018 and they have performed live on BBC Radio 6 Mark Rileyโ€™s show in May 2020. Their latest album, Every Bad, was released to critical acclaim in March 2020. They also released three singles later that year.

Porridge Radio was started by Dana Margolin, who prior to starting the band was attending open mics and songwriting in her bedroom. She formed Porridge Radio as a way to express herself by using inspiration from the sea and her seaside home of Brighton. The band was formed with Maddie Ryall on bass, Georgie Stott on keyboard, and Sam Yardley on drums. For more information see:
