Nantwich Food and Drink Festival and Beer Festival

The Nantwich Food and Drink Festival was a great success which an estimated 30,000 people attended. The array of foods and drinks that were available for sampling was spectacular.

Nantwich Town was thriving over the three day event. The local businesses and retailers who travelled from afar were pleased beyond expectation. The visitors came from all over the country. The Cat did food tastings at The Cat's base within the town. Clewlows Butchers produced their traditional sausage for tastings which the public thoroughly enjoyed. A festival enjoyed by all.

You can listen to the interviews from both the Food and Drink Festival and the Nantwich Beer Festival throughout this week. See the programme guide for show times. You can also hear them via our Listen Again feature.

Wybunbury Delves C of E Primary School visit The Cat

Children from Wybunbury Delves C of E Primary School visited The Cat studio today to see a radio studio firsthand and learn about what is involved in presenting a show and editing sounds.

The year 4 children are learning about media and transmission and enjoyed presenting, selecting songs, learning about editing. They even made their own jingle! The school project was a perfect link with The Cat. One young presenter described the visit at "immense"! Another said it was the best school trip they had ever had.

We have some young talented presenters to be at Wybunbury Delves!

The first school visit to The Cat took place today (Monday 4 October) at 10am and you can Listen Again to their time on air on The Cat's Listen Again page. A second group will visit the studio tomorrow at the same time. Listen to them live at thisisthecat.com.
