Kiri Pritchard-McLean's funny foster journey! 

Comedian Kiri Pritchard-McLean's had a busy few years... hosting Live at the Apollo, fronting the Radio 4 panel show Best Medicine, and then there's her podcast about serial killers! 

She's also become a foster parent and until now, she hasn’t been able to talk about it on stage. She's only just told the kids in her care that she’s a comedian... and what her real name is! Kiri's tour, Peacock, is all about her foster journey and she's bringing it to the Wells Comedy Festival in late May. It's also at the Taunton Brewhouse in September and here, we chat all about it.

Hello App-Fest! 

cheddar brooch comes to Court House Retirement Home in Cheddar

Treasure troves & the Cheddar brooch

The Cheddar brooch was unearthed by a local detectorist, it's been on display at the Museum of Somerset. Recently it returned 'home' to visit Cheddar village where it  previously lay in the ground, untouched for over 1000 years! Court House Retirement Home hosted a surprise visit where residents saw the brooch up close. We were there too, chatting to residents about the brooch and about their own special treasures as part of a new project in conjunction with the South West Heritage Trust, Treasure Troves.

You'll be able to listen to all the joy of the conversation right here, very soon.
