Lewes skyline


Updated for 2018 [note the rest of the website will be amended in time for when the run starts]

In 2018, Rocket FM brings its distinctive and entertaining mix of local views, news and music to the airwaves for our eighteenth year; promoting Lewes and the wealth of products and services available from local businesses.

Rocket FM has become a Lewes institution, with a loyal and well-established audience. You could reach them, with your own radio advertisement – and it’s easier and cheaper than you think …


  • Advertise your business or service on Rocket FM for as little as £135*. We’ll write and record a bespoke 30 second advertisement for you, which we’ll play out at least three times throughout each day of our 15 day run – that’s at least 45 plays. Plus, we’ll feature your logo on our website, with a link to your own website if you wish.
    *Early bird discount: pay by mid September to receive a discount on the normal price of £175 – great value compared to small press advertising … and no VAT!
  • Sponsor a Rocket FM show (e.g. breakfast, or drive-time), the weather, or a specialist music programme. Opportunities start at £300 and represent exceptional value for money, as an advertisement is bundled with your sponsorship.
  • Donate a prize to give away on air, and we’ll give you a plug! Competitions on Rocket FM attract a lot of interest, and you can generate useful publicity and goodwill for your business by donating a small daily prize, or a larger prize for a longer-running competition.

Rocket FM is put together by a small army of local volunteers who give their time and expertise for free – many with specialist knowledge and skills in broadcasting, music, IT and community affairs. But it costs around £4,000 each year for music rights and broadcasting licences and operational expenses, so we rely on businesses like yours for support.
