This year Debby will be doing three Wednesday afternoon shows of chat, music and musings on all things Lewes related that she has come across and would like to share. Together with some of her favourite tunes.
Wednesday 17th October show – Lewes Women of Note
The first guest is Judith Davies who took a walking tour in the recent Lewes Walks Fest on the theme of Notable Lewes Women, looking at the places where they lived in the town and talking about their achievements. She will join Debby in the studio to select together some of these women and look at their contributions: whether in the arts, society – or even horse racing.
In the second hour Frances Stenlake will join them and describe the difference between a Suffragist and a Suffragette during this centenary anniversary of (some) women getting the vote in 1918.
Prepare to be enlightened.
Wednesday 24th October – Our nature reserves
Kim Dawson, local Ranger will join Debby to talk about all things Nature. She will describe her work and the lovely nature reserves in the locality, with a particular reference to the work of Railway Land Wildlife Trust in Lewes.
Wednesday 31st October – Pumpkins and Pagans
Debby will be joined by Marina Pepper on this Halloween to cover a wide range of topics including the local community allotment where she volunteers, some seasonal Sussex traditions and things that go bump in the night.
The programme will round up the run with a look at events going on Beyond Bonfire … if we can imagine such a thing!
