F.O.D TV was launched initially in March 2020 in response to the COVID pandemic where we produced a live show called SaturGAY every week which took the form of a badly run quiz night!
When lockdown was entered, we did not want a lockdown to leave people locked out. So, we looked for alternative ways to ensure that Club F.O.D could continue with what we set out to achieve. We started producing live streams from our Facebook page and other social media to ensure that when “…even at home, you’re never alone…”
As lockdown started to ease, our intention was to discontinue with virtual events but following feedback and messages received after our last virtual show, we realised that online events and broadcasts can literally be a lifeline to some members of our community and we want to ensure that our community reach goes beyond that of a physical venue and make sure that not one person is overlooked.
Thanks to a grant from the National Lottery, our ability to develop more online content has been strengthened as well as our ability to support individuals to create content as well.
Our current schedule consists of:
- Wednesday 8pm: The Weekly Woof
- Friday 8pm: Wake’s World
- Saturday 8pm: SaturGAY
