Competition Time - Get Crafty with Blackpool Transport

1 month ago Tue 21st Apr 2020

As the nation continues to keep safe and stay at home we wanted to bring a creative way to keep you and the kids (or just you!) busy.

We've teamed up with the Sandcastle Waterpark to launch a crafty competition to keep you occupied and to give you the chance to win a family of four pass to the Sandcastle, including Hyperzone wristbands* (for all of those extra slides!) and a full day's worth of travel to get you up and down the Fylde Coast**.

All you have to do is create, build, craft or model your very own Blackpool Transport bus, of any shape, size or colour. The only rule? It can't be flat! That means no drawings or paintings unless you can do them in 3D or on 3D objects (Collages stuck to paper or card an absolute yes! Just nothing, flat...).

We can't wait to see you really get crafty and make something to show off on our social media pages!

How do I enter?

We know there are going to be some budding Banksy's and some daring Da Vinci's out there and we want to share your creations with the world! (Well, digitally..) So, take a picture of your masterpiece and upload it to our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages with the hashtag #craftyblackpool and we'll pick our favourite on Friday 1st May 2020.

If you don't want to post them to our pages, you can also send them to us at [email protected] and we'll share them for you!

So, what are you waiting for? Dig out your pasta shells, your PVA glue, your building bricks or your modelling clay and get crafting collages, scraping sculptures and build some buses!

*The prize winner will be contacted to arrange a suitable date once government guidance allows and businesses fully re-open.
** Age, height and weight restrictions apply on Hyperzone slides.

You can find all terms and conditions right here.
