Up Close & Personal with Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Get more this Summer with Nation Radio and Hays Travel as we get up close and personal with Sophie Ellis-Bextor….

Join us on Thursday 22nd of June at Village Hotel Portsmouth as we get all the gossip as Sophie catches up with Nation’s Dr Fox.

Then it’ll be murder on the dancefloor as we enjoy all the old favourites plus new material from Sophie's new album HANA, releasing on Friday 2nd June.

This invite only event will give you an intimate audience with Sophie. Nation’s very own Dr Fox will sit down with Sophie to give us an insight into Sophie’s life, passions and what she's been up to.

Following the interview we will enjoy a 35 minute set from Sophie, she will perform some of her favourites and give us an insight into each song.

The night will be rounded off with a DJ set from one of our network presenters, Tony Dibbin.
