Something old, somewhere new

It’s all about vintage on the show this weekend!

Flashing back to the 40s and 50s, in the first hour Harriet Lawton from Visit Lincs Coast will be talking about an upcoming event which mixes the old and the new.

The ‘old’ is the theme of the event, the ‘new’ the fact that the little Lincolnshire town of Sutton-on-Sea is hosting the event for the very first time…

Vintage on Sea comes to Sutton on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May, bringing a vintage market, Punch and Judy, classic cars and entertainment for all the family to the High Street between 11am and 5pm both days.

There’ll be plenty of live music throughout the weekend too. Jive to the sounds of Glen Miller and sing along to some of those silly wartime songs with Johnny Victory – and you’ll need your dancing shoes again to join in the fun as members of the Lincolnshire Lindy Hop Clubs and DJ Dr Swing take centre stage to teach you a few steps!

Hot on Harriet’s heels, Maxine Hoole-Jackson will be continuing the ‘something old, somewhere new’ theme in the second hour of the show.

She’ll be chatting to June and Rosalyn about her passion for vintage fashion and accessories, a passion that’s obvious to customers lining up to browse and shop at Rocket Retro.

Recently re-located to The Arcade in Newark, it’s a tiny treasure trove that reflects Maxine’s own colourful, quirky style. Find out where and how she sources the pre-loved items on sale and why giving a new lease of life to everything from t-shirts to tea dresses, boots to bags – and more –  is so important to her.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for a touch of nostalgia with Harriet, Maxine and the Girls Around Town

Spilling the beans on a new festival for Newark

Rachel’s going to be in her element on next weekend’s show, when fellow vegan Shena Louise drops by to talk about a brand new event coming to Newark in a couple of months’ time!

Shena will be joining Rachel and June to spill the beans on the first ever Newark Vegan Festival which takes place in the stunning setting of The Ballroom at Newark Town Hall.

She’ll be looking back at the festival which took place in Lincoln today and looking ahead to what’s in store for visitors to the Newark festival between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 16 February

With everything from food and drink to talks and advice on offer, together with a little entertainment thrown in for good measure, there’ll be plenty to see and do – and no doubt plenty of tasty vegan treats to try and buy as well!

Tune in or listen online from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday to find out why and how Rachel and Shena embrace the vegan lifestyle and how, by organising these festivals and other events, Shena is supporting local businesses who share her passion for all things vegan…
