Get a local business involved

Get a local business involved in the bird song takeover with our top tips and resources.

Business benefits

The bird song takeover takes place on Thursday 17 October 2019. We want to get bird song everywhere and tell the people in power that we don’t want bird song to disappear.

It’s easy for businesses to play bird song on their premises – so why not start a face-to-face conversation with local companies? Bird song has been shown to have all kinds of calming benefits, so it could boost their business. We can provide you with a template letter, tweet and email to get you started. You can also contact a business on social media using the share bar at the bottom of the page.

How would a local business get involved?

If you’d like to suggest taking part on 17 October to your local shop, café or doctors' surgery, our downloadable resources below will give you plenty of supporting materials. Thank you for helping to spread the word!

What resources can I provide?

You can provide them with editable posters advertising the event, bunting and ready-made email signatures. The idea is to make it as easy as possible for them to take part and let more people enjoy the pleasures of bird song. Our resources are provided in both English and Welsh

How do I provide a business with bird song audio?

The best thing to do is to point them to the Birdsong Radio page at rspb.org.uk/let-nature-sing/birdsong-radio. There they can download the Birdsong Radio app, stream on the RSPB site or stream on Spotify. We can also provide an mp3 file, you can request this by visiting our business takeover page.
