Great Yarmouth Event Information

Family Fun Night with The Beach plus 500 of prizes to be won

Wednesday 14th December 2011

One lucky person will leave Great Yarmouth town centre Wednesday night with £500 of goodies and gift vouchers. The prize is being offered as a free to enter prize draw being held as part of the late night shopping event in the Market Place on 14th December.

Tickets for the draw can be obtained from a number of town centre retailers, all of whom have contributed to the £500 bonanza of prizes. The prize fund includes a touch screen mobile phone from the O2 shop, a free eye test and designer glasses from Specsavers, a Cars console game & tee shirt from Game and £50 each of Blue Inc and Poundland gift vouchers. No purchase is necessary to enter the draw; however tickets are limited to one per person, per shop, per day, giving shoppers up to 15 chances of winning if they visit every participating business to request a ticket before the draw at 8pm on Wednesday.

The only other main condition is that ticket holders will need to be at the draw when it is made on The Beach Soundstage at 8pm Wednesday evening. When the winning number is announced by presenter Tim Lindon, the ticket holder will have 60 seconds to come forward and claim their prize, if this first number is not claimed then another ticket will be drawn. This process will be repeated until a winner is found on the night. The draw for the winning ticket will be preceded by live music and festive entertainment with snow machines installed around the stage to create a seasonal atmosphere with most shops open until 8.30pm.

Borough council car parks are free from 4pm and the fun starts at 6pm with shoppers having until 7.45 to collect their tickets from the participating stores, a full list of which is as follows: Specsavers, O2 Shop, F Hinds, Iceland, Bizarre Bizarre, Wilkinsons, Sentiments, Blue Inc, Palmers, Café Nova, Poundland, Pop-In Cafe, Game, Orange and Just Essentials.
