Join Juliette as she makes the world a friendlier place – one meet up at a time – talking to people who truly love what they do, in their corner of the world. It’s a celebration of nerdery, but also of passion. Post lockdowns, the world is there to be explored; people to be met and stories shared – it’s what the joy of being human is all about. So join Juliette as she explores this Not-So Lonely Planet via the enthusiasm of the people within it. Listen to the trailer here:

“Juliette’s work as an ambassador for Rethink Mental Illness has played an integral part in educating people on a topic that many have felt uncomfortable discussing. Her willingness to draw on her past in a light hearted way has been vital in helping us to challenge the stigma and taboo of a topic that directly affects so many.”

Sylvia is an anxious soul, but a new book helps her fall asleep in her new flat where she lives with boyfriend Ryan. In her dreams, her subconscious takes her on what could be an adventure of self-discovery or a ridiculous series of events. Can she learn anything before she wakes up?
In my show ‘Defined’ I ask audiences online and in live venues to define their town and themselves in 5 words. Here you will find a map of all of those wonderful words, which we will continue to build until we have mapped as much of the UK (and the world!) as we possibly can! You can join the conversation and define your town or define yourself in five words.
