Steve Winter, Old Vic New Voices Director
This summer The Old Vic theatre’s emerging talent arm will be taking a season of work from newly discovered directors, writers and performers to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the first time. The five productions by artists mentored through the Old Vic New Voices initiative tackle subjects as diverse as women boxers, male body dysmorphia, and teenage prostitution.
Steve Winter joined Claudia to discuss.
Author, farmer & Blur member Alex James
Alex James is well known as the bassist in Britpop legends Blur, but he’s now equally famous as an author, columnist and cheese-maker of some repute. Having already documented his hedonistic Britpop years in A Bit Of A Blur, Alex's latest book All Cheeses Great & Small tells the story of his transformation from tearaway rock star in to a farm-owning, cheese-making family man.
Actors Tim McInnery & Georgia Moffett
The final piece of work from acclaimed playwright Joe Orton was first staged back in 1969 and has returned to the London stage so much since then it can’t just be butlers who have seen it by now. The latest revival is currently playing in the city’s Vaudeville Theatre and among the stellar cast are Tim McInnerny and Georgia Moffett, who join me on the Radio 2 Arts Show now.
THE TOUR GUIDE'S GUIDE TO ART - HAT WORKS - THE HATTING MUSEUM, STOCKPORT
Visitors Services Assistant Sue Lea tells us about her favourite part of the museum:Find out more about Hat Works
"This is a multi-roller machine at Hat Works. I have a strong family connection with this machinery as my father was an engineer and my mother worked on this machine alongside other female members of my family. After school I would go to the factory and wait for them finishing work. It was extremely noisy, misty, and hot with all the fur flying around. But it still has fond memories for me and a testament to all the hard working people of the Hatting Industry."
