Stuart Fraser documentary to launch 23 May 2018 after three months' work
9 May 2018
I am excited to announce Stuart Fraser: The Unsociable Social Entrepreneur will launch on 23 May 2018 at 4pm.
The 'final project' of my BA Television and Radio degree at the University of Salford will explore the life of local chef Stuart Fraser. Details of the 30 minute radio documentary will be published here soon.
Diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and ADHD as a child, paediatricians predicted Stuart may never be able to write. Now aged 24, he is running an award winning community interest company called Sourced in Salford.
His Friday night supper club has become a hit in Broughton due to its £2 entry fee per person, restaurant-standard decor and food. The initiative works with FareShare, the UK's largest charity fighting hunger and food waste, to give back to the community in which Stuart grew up.
His latest venture, a new dry bar and café situated within the Salford Lifestyle Centre, aims to encourage the community to come together around food. Stuart said of the release "I think after all the work we've done and all the work Nick has done, it will be really good for people to hear our story."
Details about how you can listen to the documentary, produced over three months, will be published on 23 May 2018.
