"Giving voice to the region"
About Weald Productions
Weald Productions are a communications and sound production agency, specialising in podcasting and radio. Our team offer expertise in radio production, radio advertising and programme consultancy.
Sound is core to what we do, it's what we specialise in, it's what we love.
All the services we provide for clients are founded on the principle that sound is a powerful way for people to communicate. We believe these are some of the reasons sound is so powerful;
Sound is one of the principal ways in which we perceive what is happening in the world around us and by which we communicate with the people in it
Sound communication can be front of mind or ambient, immersive or superficial, requiring attention or received subliminally
Sound creates mood and evokes emotion, provides information and motivates action, facilitates dialogue and builds relationships
Sound is used for creative, educational, community and business communication
Sound is an area of specialism that requires focussed expertise for maximum communications effectiveness
The Weald Story
"A city that is not a city"
The Weald is more than just a region in the South-East; it’s a huge city that isn’t a city, it’s a castle, a garden, a village, a town, a farm, a forest, a Roman road.
The Weald is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) that covers a large swathe of south-east England. The area has always been a hub of economic and creative activity, a place where people of diverse cultures, interests, ambitions and capabilities live, work and play together.
Today the Weald is a region that is being re-energised as somewhere to live and work, as the general trend towards working from home (rather than commuting to the big city) has been accelerated by the recent Coronavirus pandemic.
Citizens of the Weald want to get a sense of what is around them, where they live and where they now work. People, families, communities, schools, businesses and other organisations all want to get more out of being local.
Our Vision and Values
"Diversity, inclusion, connection"
Our vision is that the people across the Weald live and work in a region of connected and thriving local areas. Their immediate community of family, friends and colleagues is enriched because it is part of a wider cultural, economic and creative constituency.
The Weald has historical roots - many in the past have come to live and work and contribute to the area - but it also has a modern outlook. That modern outlook is what is at the core of our values. The people of the Weald are more diverse in ethnicity, capability, talents than any other region in the country. Our core values are centred around inclusion because we believe that recognising and embracing diversity contributes to the quality of life for all who work and live in the Weald.
Weald Productions has been founded on the principle of 'Sound Communication'. We believe that sound is a highly democratic and inclusive medium: sound does not single out differences in colour of a person's skin; sound does not highlight physical disability or deformity; sound is the medium where meaning is translated through words, music and sounds that can be factual, emotional, entertaining, educational.
