Boot camp

Jon Savage, one of the Get Out Of The Garage celebrity judges, commented: "Big congrats to Matthew Mole. An unexpected, but deserved, winner who showed great strength in his songwriting ability. Now we are going to put him through the rigourous Get Out Of The Garage boot camp to prepare him for the London Show. This will involve live training, performance training, set building and many other important workshops to get him gig fit at an international level."

The fan who has won the trip will be announced shortly. Converse has given him/her and a partner the chance to accompany Matthew Mole in VIP style for his London gig.

Mole won with the song entitled You And Your Crown.
