Norwich’s community radio station, Future Radio, has launched a brand new vegan radio show – the only one of its kind in the country
Norwich boasts a thriving food scene with a range of independent restaurants, cafes and an award-winning market that is full of incredible eateries offering plant-based dishes, and now it’s also home to the UK’s first vegan radio show.
Presenters Laura Richardson and Ben Tonks, along with Vegan news reporter Emily Moore, broadcast the Future Vegan show every other Thursday, with a repeat available to catch up on on Saturdays.
Tune in to discover what the city has to offer for vegans, as well as reflecting on national and global vegan news.
Vegan guests will also feature on the show to discuss a wide range of topics that are important to the vegan community such as health and lifestyle, environmental concerns and animal rights.
Alongside their plant-based discussions, you can expect to hear music exclusively by vegan artists such as MacKa B and Erykah Badu.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Future Vegan producer Clive McCann-Williams said: “Norwich has a very strong and thriving vegan community – I think it’s one of the best places in the UK to be Vegan – so it seemed like a no brainer for it to be represented on local radio.
“We aim to entertain the listeners with a celebration of veganism, showcasing its rich abundance of complexities and simplicities. We plan to make the show a relaxed and informative listen for Vegans and non-Vegans alike. We’ll feature music by famous Vegan artists, and interview some of the characters from the Norwich Vegan community and beyond.”
