In this week's show, Charlotte looked ahead to the summer and picked her festival highlights across the UK, including the Battle Proms and the Edinburgh International Festival.  

Charlotte also focussed on the York Festival of Ideas – the largest free festival in the UK – in the company of the legendary mezzo-soprano Dame Janet Baker, who’s appearing at the event this year.



And at the Bristol Proms, there are performances by trumpeter extraordinaire Alison Balsom and the great guitarist Milos Karadaglic to look forward to.

Here are a selection of previous interviews from the Culture Club with some of the stars of this year's Bristol Proms:
