Snouts out of the trough, the competition’s ended and we have not one but TWO winners to announce. These lucky Muddy readers have won a family ticket each to see Babe The Sheep Pig at the Corn Exchange Newbury.
Based on Dick King-Smith’s best-selling book, it all about a little pig who dreams big. The show will be brought to life by a cast of West End performers in a show full of laughter, stunning puppetry and live music.
Happy St David’s Day! Happy Spring! Happy first day of the month! And happy days to one very lucky Muddy reader who is about to float off with a luxury weekend at Another Place The Lakes in Ulswater, The Lake District.
Thousands of you entered this one – I guess everyone needs a holiday! – but the winner is (*drum roll*)…
Congratulations to you lady.
We do try to push the boat out on prizes for you to win, but we’ve had we had one so delicious it was literally bobbing over the water. But check out this lakeside view!
Another Place, The Lake in Ullswater in the Lake District is the most ridiculously gorgeous, luxurious, stylish hotel we’ve seen in a very long time and we’ve nabbed a two night stay, worth nearly £800, for one lucky Muddy reader (and your plus one obvs).
Blimey, what you guys won’t do for a slap-up meal and a luxury sleepover. Loads of you wanted to win the Michelin nosh up for two at the Crown at Bray, and I was inundated with entries (bribes and begging letters… you know who you are).
Who can blame you? With three courses to scoff, aperitif and wine at a Heston pub plus sleepover at Bray Cottages –if the winner needs a plus one, I am available.
Wow, that was a hard-fought competition! Loads of you wanted to win the Thornbury Castle competition, and no wonder – a luxe 2-night stay worth £1000 from those lovely folk at Luxury Family Hotels, in the castle where Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn honeymooned? A chance to ditch the kids, ramp up the romance and make your escape – it’s almost enough to make you lose your head in all the excitement!
Fancy staying in the castle where Henry VIII and Ann Boleyn honeymooned? Thornbury Castle is a stonking 500 year old Tudor beauty on the edge of the Cotswolds, reviewed by none other than our lovely (and lucky!) editor-in-chiefness, Hero from Muddy Bucks & Oxon a few months back (here, take a look).
Anyway, I’ll be damned, and off with her head …. er whoops, what I mean is, flippin heck, Luxury Family Hotels have only gone and offered Muddy readers the chance to win a luxe two night stay here worth £1000, including breakfast and a three course dinner for two adults!
Well, I think it’s safe to say that the Muddy Stoke Park competition was popular! Over 2000 entries and a lot of finger crossing, but Christina St Croix (great name btw) obviously worked her toes too, because she has snaffled the luxe spa break for two for the night. You lucky, lucky (*sob*) lucky lady.
So it’s congratulations to Christina – get in touch with email@example.com. Sorry to the rest of you but fear not, mes amis – it wouldn’t be Muddy without another brilliant competition skidding around the corner any minute in a sports car.
In I float, a vision of loveliness, wearing my flounciest, bouffiest sparkly fairy dress, waving my magic wand – brrrrrrriiing! – giving you the chance to win the kind of prize I’d sell Prince Charming for.
Stoke Park is the hotel where Bridget Jones romped on the four poster with Daniel Carver; where Daniel Craig acted his ears off in Layercake; where James Bond played golf in Goldfinger.
