Event description

Description

Instant Sunshine will have you on your feet! All in aid of the Friends Butterfly room project for end of life care.

The Friends Butterfly Room Project

Since the middle of last year the Friends focus has been on expanding the number of Butterfly Rooms within the hospital as part of the Trust's programme of improving its palliative care. These rooms are dedicated to those patients near the end of life, so that friends and family can spend more time with their loved ones in their last days. The Friends redecorate these side rooms to provide additional comfort and a peaceful environment for patients and their families.

The value of these rooms can be highlighted by comments we recieved below from a family who used one of our refurbished rooms:

"Our mother spent her last couple of weeks in the newly created Butterfly Room on the David Erskine Ward and we couldn't have asked for anywhere better. She was very comfortable there and for us and the rest of our family, it was a lovely quiet and calm room in which we could spend as much time as we needed to with her to say goodbye. Thank you to everyone involved in the creation of the room"

Instant Sunshine

Best known for their long association with BBC Radio’s Stop the Week, Instant Sunshine’s unique and original humorous songs, laden with self-parody, have delighted audiences at home and abroad for decades. As a musical comedy team they have been described as brightening up the dullest of days with their timeless entertainment.

They play regularly at festivals and theatres throughout the United Kingdom and have delighted audiences on their travels round the world to New York, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Bermuda where they returned for the Millennium Festival. On their first appearance to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe over 30 years ago they were voted Hit of the Fringe and return regularly to this wonderful carnival to savour the delights and meet old friends. One year a collection of comedy shows called The Lunatic Fringe transferred to London’s West End for a season and Instant Sunshine took part in this.

Instant Sunshine have written and performed many signature tunes for a variety of radio and television programmes including Oneupmansip, One is Fun, Money Box, Constant Hot Water, and for their own series of Jackanory. There have been several Instant Sunshine series on BBC radio and a number of these recordings are in the BBC archive and have been included on BBC compilation CDs. Also a number of these programmes are played regularly on BBC radio 4 extra.

It was the long association with the BBC Radio’s Stop the Week that gave Instant Sunshine the opportunity to reach a wide audience but it is in their live concerts that their talents are fully appreciated both in cabaret and in theatre concerts. They enjoy the intimate venues particularly but have had audiences in the Albert Hall singing along in Christmas concerts and a packed house at Chichester Cathedral shouting for more.
