VQ Retro Mini + Win Tickets to see Jersey Boys!

I absolutely love hosting dinner parties, game nights and so much more with my friends and family over the festive season. With that in consideration I am also a huge fan of musicals and Jersey Boys has been on my list of shows to see for quite a long time. With that in mind when you host that kind of evening you need music and/or when your working from your office, singing along to your favourite musical soundtracks and more! My evenings will forever be benefited thanks to the new addition in my household, the Retro Mini DAB + Radio from VQ.

VQ contacted me to see whether I'd like to review one of their radios and also talk about their opportunity to win a pair of tickets to see Jersey Boys in London. Between the 28th November - 19th December  one lucky customer will be in the chance of winning tickets when they've purchased one of their products through their online store. One of the products you may be interested in is the Retro Mini DAB + Radio and boy isn't it a great product. 

The VQ Retro Mini is combat and stylish to fit into any home perfectly, so whether that's your office, kitchen or your dining room for those dinner parties you'll be holding over the festive season (and beyond!) It's size is perfect, cute and stylish, plus it would be make for perfect photo taking! The Retro Mini has many different designs to choose from thanks to it's premium leatherette wrap which is available to you in 11 influenced colours and 3 Emma Bridgewater patterns, so you will be spoilt for choice when choosing your own. 

The product is also pretty lightweight so can be easily transferred throughout your house. It can also have batteries inserted into the pack, these can last up to 15 hours! Otherwise you can plug it direct through a lead to the plug socket, whatever floats your boat. 

The Retro Mini has many exciting features including DAB, DAB+, FM radio reception having access to the full range of digital and analogue services from across the UK and Europe. You can even enjoy the favourite tracks from your very own phone or smart device by connecting it through Bluetooth or a 3.5mm aux-in connection. There's also a USB charging port available on the Retro Mini so you can charge up your device as you stream, perfect. I have loved listening to the Original Cast Recording album of Jersey Boys over the past couple of days! It's sound quality is just as good as plugging your phone into average speakers but the Retro Mini looks more stylish and smart for those types of events. 

I think this is a perfect opportunity and Jersey Boys is a musical loved by a lot of people, including myself. Also this mini radio would make a fab Christmas gift this month!  Head over to the VQ website www.myvq.co.uk right now and get searching for your perfect mini radio for the chance to win the tickets! They not only have the Retro Mini but a whole host of great products to get your hands on!
