A fun-filled festival that’s packed with positivity

It’s getting on for almost three years since Claire Clements popped into the Radio Newark studio to announce the launch of her brand new Positively Empowered Kids Festival.

And now she’s back on Girls Around Town next weekend to share some of the details of the next one!

Of course, she’s been behind the mic or on the phone to June several times since that initial on air chat, with news of all the other events and activities she’s been running to help kids build their confidence and understand the importance of gratitude and positivity…

And most recently to talk to about her best-selling book, Put On Your Positive Pants, an uplifting and empowering story that introduces you and your children to a variety of ways to boost their mood when they’re feeling sad.

But putting together the 2022 festival is top of her list right now and if the one back in 2019 – packed with everything from yoga, circus skills and wellbeing crafts to making healthy food, family massage and tai chi – is anything to go by, those kids are in for a day full of fun in September!

Make sure you Put On Your Sunday Best – and your Positive Pants too – to join June and Claire in the second hour of next week’s show on 107.8FM, on the apps or online to find out what’s already on the cards for the festival, how you can keep up to date with other activities being added over the coming weeks and months…

And of course how to book tickets for the big day when they’re up for grabs!


A new chapter for Boston’s Book Festival

It’s all about Boston on Girls Around Town this Sunday morning.

But if previous on air chats with guest Jane Keightley are anything to go by, her conversation with June in the second hour of the show is sure to include a quick virtual trip over to Italy as well!

Freelance travel writer and tour guide Jane will be back in the studio to share some of the highlights of the past year, together with details of what’s on the cards for 2022. And top of both lists will no doubt be the Boston Book Festival she launched in 2021 that she’ll be bringing back to her Lincolnshire home town this September.

Make sure you Put On Your Sunday Best by tuning to 107.8FM or listening on the apps, on Alexa or online from just after 11.10am this weekend to find out what’s in store for book lovers of all ages at this year’s event, along with details of how to keep updated as the plans progress…

And hear what Jane has to say about the latest string added to her bow – a new job at one of the Book Festival’s venues, the 300-year old Fydell House in the heart of Boston’s Cultural Quarter, where she’s just taken on the role of receptionist, tour guide and wedding organiser!
