Win a holiday for 4 to celebrate our January Sale

Enter today & win with us…

To mark our January Sale, you could win a holiday for you and 3 of your friends to one of a great selection of destinations. Simply guess how long our ice sculpture will take to melt and release the aircraft.

Enter your time here


To celebrate our Goodbye Winter Sale we are unveiling our 6ft ice sculpture in Westfield Stratford City shopping centre on Saturday 14th January. Inside the sculpture there will be a model plane. The clock starts at 9am and it stops when the ice sculpture melts and the plane glides out of the ice.

To win all you have to do is guess when it will melt and be in with the chance to win a dream holiday for four. Good luck!
