Hi, I’m Penny and I present the What’s On In Dacorum show.

 

There’s something for everyone in our lovely borough, from the glorious countryside at Ashridge and the curiosities of the Natural History Museum to the plays, comedy and music events at the Old Town Hall Theatre.

 

Tune in on Wednesdays from 7-9pm to find out what’s happening in Hemel, Berkhamsted, Tring and the villages.

 

We do all the research so you don’t have to!

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT'S ON IN DACORUM - WEDNESDAYS - 7PM - 9PM

PENNY

Why did you join Radio Dacorum?

I’m part of the European Projects Team at Community Action Dacorum and often interview our many interesting visitors from overseas on Radio Dacorum.  The opportunity came up to host What’s On In Dacorum and I decided it was a great way to get more involved in Radio Dacorum and at the same time, learn more about what is happening in the borough.  And as I’ve discovered … there’s a lot going on!

Your favourite places in Dacorum?

Ivinghoe Beacon for the views and Ashridge for ever-changing colours.  We are so lucky to have them on our doorstep.

Favourite music?

Given a free rein, I’d play contemporary jazz or anything by Pat Metheny, the Esbjorn Svensson Trio or Snarky Puppy. A bit of Miles Davis never goes amiss, either! I also love the joyful, exuberant music from West Africa, especially from Mali and Senegal. Just thinking about the gigs I've been to by Toumani Diabate and Salif Keita makes me smile.

Plays? 

I’ve been a huge Tom Stoppard fan ever since I was involved in a youth theatre production of The Real Inspector Hound (many years ago!)  There are few who can match his verbal gymnastics and twisted logic.

Other interests?

Travel. I’m lucky to have visited China twice and would love to explore more.  Closer to home, I’m often to be found on my allotment… it’s the ultimate relaxation.  There’s nothing like nurturing seedlings, watching them grow into healthy vegetables - and then eating them of course.
