This week on Radio DIVA: The Voice UK’s Lauren Bannon and legendary theatre company Split Britches
Plus Olly Pike, Abigail Tarttelin AND Heather Peace is back in the studio! 🎉
Regular listeners will be thrilled to hear that our wonderful co-host Heather Peace is in the Radio DIVA studio once again. It’s great to have you back, Heather!
She’ll be joining the marvellous Rosie Wilby at the helm of your favourite radio show - and what a jam-packed hour they have in store for you!
She stole our hearts when she kissed her wife on The Voice UK, then she blew us all away with that incredible voice. Now songstress Lauren Bannon (aka Lløren) is appearing live on Radio DIVA. She’ll be chatting to Heather and Rosie about her experience on the hit reality show, revealing what’s coming up next and much, much more.
Also in the studio is author and LGBT+ advocate Olly Pike. Olly writes fantastically inclusive children’s books, such as his latest offering, The Prince And The Frog. We can’t wait to welcome him to the Radio DIVA family and learn more about his mission to educate young readers and make the world a more rainbow-friendly place.
Joining in all the fun and games is renowned performer Peggy Shaw. She’ll be filling us in on her latest collaboration with Lois Weaver. These inspiring women are two of the founding members of iconic lesbian feminist theatre company, Split Britches. They’re currently on a UK tour so listen in to find out more.
