Thousands of pairs of FREE tickets for a host of attractions and activities across the county are up for grabs in the Herts Big Weekend ballot.

Registration for the 3rd Big Weekend is now open, with 51 attractions offering amazing tickets.

Lucky Hertfordshire residents won’t have to pay a penny to see behind the scenes of the Harry Potter films, get up close to the animals at Paradise Wildlife Park or see 500 years of Herts history at Knebworth House on the last weekend of March 2018.

The Big Weekend is designed to get local people out and about exploring the amazing destinations on their doorstep during one ‘big weekend’, on 24th and 25th March. To be in with a chance of winning free tickets, residents must register at by 11th March.

Some of the county’s biggest attractions will be opening their doors or offering special gifts to lucky ticket holders on 24th and 25th March, as part of Visit Herts’ annual celebration of the county’s tourism industry.

These include St Albans Cathedral, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, Paradise Wildlife Park, Knebworth House, Hatfield Park Farm, Willows Activity Farm, Vertigo Adventures, Natural History Museum Tring, and Henry Moore Studios & Gardens.

The event is also part of English Tourism Week, which highlights the importance of tourism as one of the fastest growing sectors in the national economy. 

Two tickets per household will then be allocated to winners by random ballot (some family tickets are available). Last year, there were more than 19,000 applications for tickets to the big event, so make sure you bid for as many tickets as possible to be in with a chance of winning!

Attractions have also donated extra tickets to the Family Holiday Association charity, which helps struggling families to enjoy a day out for free.
