Listen to this week’s Porty Podcast which features Portobello Book Festival – @portypodcast

Thanks to Hazel Darwin-Clements who has put together a brilliant podcast about this year’s festival. You’ll hear from Joanne, who is on the organising committee, as well as three of the authors taking part: Emma Christie, Grahame Howard and Lesley Kelly.

One thing to note though is that there is mention of the possibility of events being available to watch online, but, with a couple of exceptions, this will not be happening. We know a lot of people enjoyed the online events last year and we did consider trying to do some more online this year. However, as a small free volunteer run festival, regrettably we simply don’t have enough people to be able to comply with the Covid regulations while also trying to stream or film for later. The only events online are ones we have planned well in advance and which will be pre-recorded.

Grab yourself a coffee and settle down to listen and find out more about the festival, taking place over the weekend of 1st-3rd October.

Malvarosa's Alvaro: Reusables Champion Porty Podcast

Spurred on by the Ditching Disposables campaign Alvaro has gone further than other traders to try and create a culture change in how we create so much preventable waste. He's brought in at reusable cups and take away containers with a deposit return scheme and has actually started charging 30p for disposable cups.
