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…

Nourish the skin you’re in

NOURISH (verb) : Provide with the food or other substances necessary for growth, health and good condition

Online, on TV or in magazines – wherever you look, there’s no shortage of advice about how to nourish your body, about what to eat (and what not to eat!) to stay healthy.

But just how much do you know about making sure you’re nourishing your skin in the best way possible too?

Step forward Shona Munro, this Sunday‘s guest on Girls Around Town, whose luxurious award-winning skincare and perfumes are handmade in small batches, organic, vegan, with no water added and non-toxic.

She’ll be explaining what inspired her to set up Skin Elixir, describing some of the challenges she’s faced and talking about where she’s hoping to take the business in the future on this week’s show with Rosalyn and June.

There’ll be news too of Let Go & Flow Inner Sanctum Sunday, when Shona will be joining forces with Dena Smiles of Probiotic Love to host a celebration of some of Nottingham‘s finest wellbeing practitioners.

Find out what they have planned for Sunday 24 June, when a yoga class, Shamanic Open Heart Drumming Meditation and a range of workshops will be among the treats on offer during this four-hour retreat, which starts with a Probiotic Love Kombucha cocktail on arrival and includes a delicious lunch and goody bag too.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to discover how to nourish – and love – the skin you’re in…
