Be in with the chance to see your story turned into a stage production with a free weekend break!*

easter fun

The final term of the school year has started and home schooling can be difficult. That’s why we’ve introduced this exciting competition to encourage kids to put down the devices, pick up their pencils and let their imagination run free.

Each year we welcome thousands of guests to our parks who look forward to watching live production shows performed by our talented Park Stars, and we’d like to invite you to write one of the shows they will enjoy.

We can’t wait to be back performing live shows for our fantastic guests and what better way to return to the stage than to perform a story written by one of you?

Please note: This competition is now closed and winners will be announced shortly

How to enter

To enter, just write a short story of 500 words or less, based on any (or all) of our loveable park mascots, Loopy, Cyril and Penny.

Email your entry along with your name and age to by the 15th May 2020 to be in with the chance.
