Abi from Ultrasun here. Well, what a day we had in sunny Reigate a few weeks ago.
Having won a competition on Absolute Radio, we were about to open our doors to rock musicians, roadies, a comedian, a magician and a full radio breakfast team (not to mention a rather large stage and a portaloo!)
We were delighted to see the stage (and bar!) go up the day before and with bacon butties ready for the 150 VIPs, the doorbell started ringing at 4.30am. I'm used to being live on air at QVC at all times right through til 2am on occasion, but even I struggled a little at 4.30am! Before we knew it the full team were in, and Miles Kane was warming up in my lounge with Hard-Fi in my bedroom (all above board!)
Being me, everyone and I mean EVERYONE was covered in Ultrasun before 7am and my goodness we needed it. There were plenty of kids there who had a great time and of course, were all safe in the sun… and yes I even managed to get Ultrasun on the ultra-cool rock bands, much to my children's embarrassment!
I must say that both Miles Kane and Hard-Fi were a complete delight – not an ego in sight. These guys normally fill huge venues, and here they were in my little back garden in leafy Surrey, but they totally gave it their all.
The crew were amazing and worked so hard. I can honestly say that our whole family, neighbours and friends had the most wonderful and amazing day. Thank you to the Christian O'Connell breakfast show and everyone who worked so hard to make it such a successful event and well done for looking after your skin in that wonderful sunshine!
See you soon,
