hempstead valley christmas road show

groovyhenney's memory of 1st December 1979 - 24th December 1979

it was a big event for gillingham Kent
the radio 1 road show was going to be at the shopping center.
of we went Linda and I on a bus, we were 16, just left school and feeling very grown up.
we missed the first bus and arrived late! but managed to climb on to a wall at the back.
Simon Bates came on to a stage along with Peter Powell both dressed as santa, they looked into the crowd pointed to the back and during the next record came and sat with us for the rest of the show.

it was fantastic, we helped hand out gifts, sang along with a song, we went home with tshirts sweatshirts badges and mugs. and not forgeting a kiss from Peter, for weeks we were recognised and the follwing year there was a photo in the radio one diary of us sitting on the wall.
