UK Hols and Theatre

We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team and we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand.

It’s an exceptionally tough time for the holiday, travel and events industry, and we are swamped with questions about your consumer rights around cancelled concerts, flights, hotels, theatre shows etc.

We’re a small team and we want to make sure Forumites are getting the answers they need accurately and quickly. So for the time being, we are hitting pause on this board and redirecting everyone to the MSE coronavirus guides that contain all the info we have – these guides are being constantly updated:
Coronavirus Help & Your Rights * Coronavirus Travel Rights

And of course, we have the Coronavirus Boards on the forum:
Coronavirus Support & Help * Coronavirus Travel Help & Info

Coronavirus: The latest from MSE

The MSE team is working extremely hard to keep the info we have about your travel rights, cancellation rights, sick pay (and more) up to date.

Lots of no purchase necessary offers! (Legoland, Sealife, Bowling etc)

Register for free at the Gosummer site and you'll get access to tons of printable, usually 2 for 1 discount vouchers for other attractions such as Legoland, AMF Bowling, Disneyland Resort Paris and Sealife Centres.

With these there’s no need to make a purchase: simply print off the voucher and hand it over at the venue.

More vouchers for other places, just buy a Fanta/Lilt etc
(Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Chessington 2 for 1s)

The Coca-Cola Company's running a 2for1 promotion on a host of summer activities including: Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures, Madame Tussauds and Warwick Castle. You can also get 2for1 DVD rental at Blockbuster.

How to grab the offers?

To get 2for1 entry at the theme parks above, grab a voucher from special 500ml bottles of Fanta, Lilt, Sprite, Dr Pepper and Oasis. Then simply take it along to the park. Much cheaper than actually buying a ticket!

To get one Blockbuster rental free when you rent another movie or game, present a voucher from special 2L bottles of Lilt, Sprite, Dr Pepper and 1.5L bottles of Oasis.

These offers run from 1 June until 30 Sept. Full T&Cs here

  • not as good as the bogof offer above but.....
    Not quite sure what theme parks the vouchers actually include, but the 'Whats on TV' mag (40p) for next week (Sat the 27th - fri 2nd) has three £15 entry coupons and one Bogof coupon in it (pg78). I went to pick mine up whilst walking my dog and realised i forgotten my purse so havent got it in hand to check where it is valid. Had quick check to make sure that they were valid for alton towers as that is where i wanna go and it is, but didnt look to see where else you could use them. Although the bogof vouch was only valid at madame tausauds and one other which i think was chessington??

    No - works first time, make sure you are registering as a new customer and not an existing one.
    A bargain is something you don't need at a price you can't resist.
