Yes, we’ve got two free tickets to the Sugabilly night at Bar Verve, Rugby on Saturday 4 September, and we’re giving them away to one lucky Hot Ginger Radio Show listener.

And what is Sugabilly?

Well, it’s a ‘hedonistic mix of rockabilly cool and sugar sweet pin-up fashion. This event brings together everything fantastic about the Fifties – rock and roll music, fashion and decor in one awesome night…’

To get a chance to win these tickets, just log on to Rhubarb Radio at 9am on Sunday 29th August, listen to the Hot Ginger Radio Show and wait for the question.

(If you don’t make it out of bed that early, fear not. The show is instantly available to ‘Play Again’ from 10am onwards)

Send your answers to by midnight on Sunday and we’ll pick a winner.

Good luck!

(The lucky winner will be informed on Wednesday 1 September, when Andy gets back off holiday and gets to pull an entry from the hat! So don’t panic if you don’t hear straight away.)

Radar love

As we’ve mentioned in a couple of Hot Ginger Radio Shows already, lovely new south Birmingham culture and lifestyle magazine RADAR have a massive feature all about Hot Ginger in their first issue. As well as lots of interesting insight into our retromantic dance nights, there are tons of photos snapped at our VE Day Knees Up.

It’s now your last chance to get your hands on a copy because we’re reliably informed the next issue is already at the printers. So if you want yours, drop the Radar chaps an email at and see if they’ve got any left. Still only two quid!

(NB. The image above isn’t the magazine spread, it’s just a promo for it. The magazine has most of those pics in it but bigger.)
