Tina’s back in town!

It’s going to be just like the old days on Girls Around Town this weekend, when former presenter Tina Bettison pops back again to bring June up to date with what’s been going on in and around Southwell

And what’s to come for the rest of spring and into summer – looking at her website, she’s got a busy time ahead!

The April exhibition, featuring images of Sherwood Forest and the River Maun by photographer Terence Lane is coming to a close but there’s lots more to see and do at BELOVED@THE BARN during May and June.

In Nourishing the Creative Fires, Tina joins forces with Jules Wheat to show a range of intuitive painting and photographic work, images and creations that have come through nourishing their creative fires and exploring their creative voices. The exhibition runs throughout next month, culminating in the Southwell/Upton Open Studios weekend from Saturday 25 to Monday 27 May.

Perhaps you’d like to get hands-on? No problem, there are workshops galore in May and June too, including a weekend retreat aimed at women feeling a need to reconnect with their inner nature and the natural world and to the wisdom of the female body. If you want to rediscover the fire in your belly, to feel nourished and inspired, this one on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May is definitely for you…

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for details of this and other events and activities coming up at The Barn and nearby.

There’s a lot to cover but, with a bit of luck, Tina and June will still find time during the show to share a bit of the lighthearted gossip that was a regular feature when they were co-presenting the show in its early days!
