Holiday competition

Win a magical London stay at the Mandrake with tickets to watch Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

We're treating one lucky reader and their guest to a totally magical night in London this autumn, with a stay at the stunning Mandrake hotel and theatre tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

The Mandrake is described as a luxury lifestyle hotel and features eclectic interiors, a carefully-curated private art collection, intriguing soundscapes and even specially designed scents. The whole experience is other-worldly. It's an Insta-paradise!

There’s magic in every moment at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, as Harry, Ron, and Hermione return on an extraordinary new adventure – this time, joined by a brave new generation that has only just arrived at the legendary Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The play is split into two halves, giving you time to explore Central London and enjoy dinner in between.

The prize

  • A 1 night stay for two at the Mandrake with oodles of glamour and indulgence
  • Two tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Parts 1 and 2)

To enter, simply follow the instructions in the box above this post.

The closing date for entries is 6th September 2022 at 23:59:59.

We'll announce the winner on our Facebook page on or shortly after the 7th September, so keep an eye out.

Good luck!
