Give a cheer the weekend is almost here and that means another freshly brewed Teacakes and Talk show, and what a treat for you this week. Last time we heard from the lovely George Montague who is headlining this year’s Stroud Fringe Festival as well as playing the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in a few weeks time, we also found out about Cheltenham’s very own fashion week, getting crafty with Sew Creative and how to get fit in Stroud.
Starting with our regular ‘That was the Year’ feature we’ve opted for something modern this time, waving a musical flag to a landmark event in the music diary we go back to the launch year of Record Store Day. What were you up to in 2007, we’d love to know.
This week we turn to the rising phenominon of the cake club, speaking to Julia Paton from the Stroud devision of The Clandestine Cake Club. To give you a flavour (sorry couldn’t help myself) of what the club is about see below.
We’ll be celebrating the centurion of the great fashion photographer Norman Parkinson chatting to Stroud Camera Club member, and photographer of course, Tammy Lynn about photographer as a hobby, career and why Mr Parkinson had an influence on her.
There’ll also be a round up of the best events going on in the Cotswolds this weekend according to Teacakes and Talk too.
And finally we’ll be chatting to Stroud band The Vast who have just finished up their second EP. They’ll be telling all about the recording process, who they’re influenced by and what Stroud means to them. Take a listen to their track Ian below.

So the launch of the Teacakes and Talk show was a blooming success, we even had people listening from Tokyo! Those two hours certainly went by quick but I had so much fun doing it and can’t wait for the next one tomorrow. So, just to give you a cheeky glimpse at what we have coming up…
Thimbles, Fabrics and Food: Last week we brought you the Fabulous Baker Brothers, this week we have a double whammy as we talk craft and fashion. First up, in the lead up to the Fashion and Beauty event in Cheltenham following its stellar success last year, it’s back again and features the likes of Sienna Miller’s designer sister Savannah heading up the event. Hayley, Project Manger for FAB Cheltenham, will be speaking to Jess Bracey about what to look forward to.
And our second Thimbles, Fabrics and Food interview this week we get crafty. In times of make and mend do Martha van der Laan is a wiz with a needle and speaks to Teacakes and Talk about the workshops and classes she offers in the Stroud area and why DIY for girls has become so popular.
Culture Club: We serve up a dish of hearty events to get you by this weekend, let’s hope the weather holds out!
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Saving the best till last, Teacakes and Talk is excited to announce that this years; Stroud Fringe Festival headliner George Montague will be in session talking about what the Cotswolds mean to him, life in the music business, and his busy schedule of festivals lined up for the summer.
In between all this we’ll have tracks from Frank Turner, Kate Bush, The XX and Jack Johnson as well as ‘That was the Year’ and this time it’s something from the 80s. Tune in tomorrow at 10am with Jess Bracey to Stroud 107.9FM or listen online www.stroudfm.co.uk.
