Character Invasion Day with BBC Radio 4

On Saturday 29 March 2014, Radio 4 explores all things character.  Character Invasion Day combines an on-air celebration of how the characters we love have been written, created and bought to life with a day of free events in all the BBC sites that make Radio Drama.

You can listen at home or come to an event at one of our Radio Drama making sites across the country.  As part of the day the BBC Writersroom is running several of the live events at Media City in Salford as well as a live webchat with top radio writers Rebecca Lenkiewicz and Sebastian Baczkiewicz, creator of Radio 4’s Pilgrim.
