Lincs FM presenters become Butlins Redcoats

It’s Show Time for Lincs FM presenters Rob Hammond (breakfast), Ross Garrigan (evenings) and John Marshall (daytime) as they train up to become Redcoats for Butlins.

At the Lincolnshire Show this year, the three presenters will be shining their shoes and limbering up their muscles as they take to the stage to perform a unique routine.

Over the next few weeks, listeners will hear them being put through their paces at the Redcoat academy in Skegness. They’ll be learning the fundamentals of being Redcoats, including donning the famous attire and heading out into the Butlins Skegness resort to liaise with holiday makers.

They will then perform two dances live on stage across both days of the Lincolnshire Show on the 24th and 25th June.

Director of Programming Sean Dunderdale told RadioToday: “Both Lincs FM and Butlins are trusted, well-known brands, and Butlins are rightly protective over who can, actually, wear one of their famous Red Coats. It will be a real honour for Rob, John and Ross, to walk onto our stage at the Lincolnshire Show in the unique uniform – so the pressure’s really on to make sure they get it right.”
