Sat 20th and Sun 21st June, 12pm - 1am Both Days

Tabletop Radio 2020 is over!

But you can relive the experience by watching most of the segments again on our YouTube channel!

What is it?

Charity fundraising has suffered greatly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and our usual in-person charity fundraising during our annual Tabletop Society Pride Week can no longer happen. So, as part of our Tabletop Pride Week (15th-21st June, Term 3 Week 9), we will be participating in the 2.6 challenge.

We wanted something to bring together our community in this isolated time, and we wanted something that echoed the marathon aspect of our Tabletop Weekends. And so we settled on an epic 26 hour charity stream (bold, I know) to tie into the "2.6" theme, with a lot of segments incorporating activities that we and the people in our community love.

We're raising money for Stonewall, an LGBT-focused charity that is committed to empowering LGBT individuals, transforming the culture of institutions towards inclusivity and acceptance, changing hearts and minds to value and respect LGBT individuals, and changing and protecting laws to contribute to LGBT equality.
