In Conversation with Becca Dean

Each week I welcome a woman who has achieved incredible things both professionally and personally in order to share their story, wisdom and of course their favourite tracks. Some are women who I know really well and have taught me a great deal, and others I will be meeting for the first time but whose work I massively admire...However, all are absolute heroes and each week I will try not to burst with excitement when chatting to them.

Favourite Song - Here Come's the Sun- The Beatles! It's my comfort song, always puts a smile on my face.

Favourite Gig - Bloc Party, Hammersmith Apollo, Summer 2016 - Kele Okereke was incredible!

Favourite Film - 500 days of Summer - a guilty pleasure, a refreshing romantic comedy that is simultaneously serious and light.

Favourite Place in Portsmouth - I am going to cheat and have two: The Square Tower and Southsea Castle, I got married in the square tower and our wedding reception was at Southsea Castle. Two beautiful Portsmouth venues that bring back such happy memories.
