Station Special Events


Yes, it’s that time again

Save The Date: Thursday 13th Dec

Belfast 89FM’s Christmas Cracker takes place on Thursday 13th December and all our volunteers together with their partner or a guest are invited.

Our venue is the “Broken Shaker” which is above the “Rusty Saddle” in Howard Street Belfast formerly known as the Washington Bar!

Belfast 89FM will provide a light buffet for the event – we’ll be providing “ Sharing Platters” and each platter will have Chicken Wings, BBQ Ribs, Nachos with Salsa/Cheese, Cheesy Garlic Bread and Breaded Goats Cheese.

There is no charge for this event for all our volunteers together with their partner or a guest but we do need everyone intending to attend to register so that we can plan the catering properly.

You can do so by completing our registration form – click here to register now.

The Christmas Cracker starting time is 7.30 pm with catering completed by 9pm.

Then we’ll open the doors to the public for a Retro Night featuring “All the Classics – All the Time” and this free, listener event will be promoted on-air from the beginning of December.

We will promote this on air in advance of the gig – open to all – especially listeners

9.00pm  “All the Classics – All the Time” – this will be open to the public

And after all that nice food and an opportunity to chat with listeners and fellow Belfast 89FM enthusiasts, you’ll have the opportunity to dance the night away in the upstairs bar area at The Rusty Saddle.

We’ll be playing all the hits from the 60s and 70s and we might sprinkle the mix with a few floor filling favourites.


The classic hits all the time.
