We’re just over a week away from Pirate BBC Essex 2017, marking 50 years since the pirate stations were forcibly shut down in 1967.

August 14th this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Marine Offences Act which ended the reign of the pirates in 1967, although Radio Caroline continued until 3rd March 1968. 

To mark and remember 1967, the LV18 will again be the home of Pirate BBC Essex! This broadcast will be 13-14 August, culminating with a unique link up with Radio Caroline.
