Win a family ticket to Bounce Festival

As part of our Unplugged summer, Bounce Festival have very kindly donated four family tickets (worth £60 each) to the event, taking place in Richmond Upon Thames this weekend.

Bounce Festival is a fun-packed day for families with loads of activities exploring science, comedy, food and much more - plus sporty activities to keep everyone entertained.

The family tickets can be used for either Saturday 10 August or Sunday 11 August, and a family ticket covers four people’s entry (at least one adult and one child in the group).

To enter, all you have to do is tell us in the comments below how many Jelly Babies are in the jar by 5pm on Thursday 8th August.

Huge thanks to Sweet Treats for kindly donating the Jelly Babies.
