    just before going on stage to see a crowd rushing to the front of the tent to see us Carol Backstage at The Acoustic was all Alice In Wonderland with lots of nibbles with tags begging us to Eat Me or Drink Me We obliged There was no sign of the Cheshire Cat though but we were grinning enough to make him look like a prize gurner Friday 28th June Bridie By Friday thankfully the sun had come out again and in the afternoon we were driven to The Bandstand stage for an interview with BBC Look North and our first public performance which was great fun Someone in the crowd filmed Prolong our new single and put it up on Youtube rather brilliantly calling us Bridie Jackson The Airbox Perhaps a rename is on the cards Carol Oh and it snowed that evening over the Greenpeace area Beautiful surreal and magical Thursday 27th June Bridie On Thursday morning we scrambled our way up to Worthy FM for a live session and interview with the lovely Steve Bilsborough who compered on the night of the Glastonbury ETC It was grand to see him again and talk through the rather amazing few months we ve had since winning the competition Carol During our quietest song Michael Eavis did a fly by in his fighter jet At least we think it was him Rachel On Thursday afternoon the rain started giving us good reason to get out and about in our glamorous wellies it wouldn t have felt like a proper Glastonbury without a bit of rain and mud Jenny In the evening we battled through the elements loaded ourselves into the back of a battered old van and were deposited at the Interstage area behind the Pyramid much like the Rolling Stones experience of arriving I m sure where we performed as part of The Opening Number a backstage event put on by Greenpeace for some of the Glastonbury performers and crew While we were there we bumped into our chum Dermot O Leary who was kind enough to do an interview for our Glasto documentary with an unusual twist to it and we even managed to ensnare a rather bemused Caroline Flack to join in Wednesday 26th June Bridie We all arrived on site at various points on Wednesday along with our entourage of husbands sisters boyfriends and our friend AB who is making a documentary of our time at Glastonbury Once we were all on site had erected and admired each other s tents and had shared a celebratory bottle of champagne we went on a bit of a reccy led by Jenny who is something of a Glasto veteran and luckily for the rest of us knows her way around We had a look round the different stages we would be playing on arriving just in time to see a glitter ball the size of a house being put up in the Acoustic Tent Initially being on site
