What's on in Basel - and lots of music

Broadcast on: 
10 October, 2023

This week's show was all about culture and music. Basel's cultural scene once again boasts a kaleidoscope of events to delight us all. Check out the Baloise Session from 21 October to 9 November, for example - the line-up this year includes Passenger, Jessie J, Norah Jones, Ellie Goulding, UB40 and Noel Gallagher, among many others. And head to the Basler Herbstmesse (Basel's autumn fair) from 28 October to 12 November. Sample all the delicious food and enjoy a myriad of fairground rides – athough depending on your constitution, not necessarily in that order.
