If you’re starting to add dates to your diary for the rest of 2022, especially in the run up to Christmas, this week’s guests on Girls Around Town will be sharing details of a couple you might want to put on your list for November!
Live in the studio in the second hour of the show, Newark Patriotic Fund‘s events chairman Jayne Mason will be chatting to June about the charity’s work, its regular meetings here in the town centre and a special concert it will be hosting in just a few weeks’ time.
Featuring the Cranwell RAF College Band and the Cranwell Military Wives, the concert takes place at the Palace Theatre on Friday 4 November.
“We’re delighted to be bringing this event to our town,” says Jayne. “Newark and the Lincolnshire village of Cranwell have a great relationship but that’s not all – it’s very rare for the college band and the military wives to perform together so we’re definitely in for a special treat when they do so at the Palace.”
Jayne will of course have details of how and where to get tickets for the concert but if you don’t want to wait untilthe weekend to book yours, just follow this link to do it now.
Earlier in the show, when June’s joined by one of her fellow Radio Newark managers, there’ll be news of another great event coming to town soon.
Clare Atherley will be popping in at about 10.20am to reveal all – until then, it’s a closely guarded secret but in the meantime, just a couple of hints…
This one will be part of the Christmas Lights Switch On which takes place on Sunday 27 November and will be raising money for another really good cause here in Newark.
Make sure you Put On Your Sunday Best on 107.8FM, on the apps, on Alexa or online from 10am to find out more from Clare…
And don’t forget to stay tuned through into the second hour of the show to hear what Jayne has to say about the Newark Patriotic Fund and its special event too!
If you live in or around Newark, there’ll be plenty to choose from when the national Fun Palace comes to town!
Cast your mind back to late August and you’ll probably remember Donna Hall’s interview on Girls Around Town, when she shared some of the details of this brand new event…
And now it’s just around the corner, with a whole host of activities taking place between Friday 1 and Sunday 3 October.
Joining June on this Sunday’s show will be former co-presenter Tina Bettison, who’ll be ringing the studio just after 11.20am with a quick update from the Market Place, one of the venues where you’ll find lots of local people, organisations and businesses offering free activities for all the family throughout the weekend.
Don’t forget to Put On Your Sunday Best as usual this weekend to hear what Tina has to say – just tune to 107.8FM, listen online, on the apps or on Alexa…
But in the meantime, whether you’re looking for a bit of a Knit and Natter, want to play traditional games in the courtyard of The National Civil War Centre, try your hand at the ukelele, meet local artists and create a textured tile to add to a collective canvas painting at The Secret Garden or just wander through the Market Place exploring the various stands and stalls, make sure you put those dates in your diary.
And keep an eye out on Sunday afternoon for June, who’ll be heading into town as soon as the show’s over to catch up with Tina in person and try out a few of those activities herself!
