Hundreds of free tickets on offer for Big Weekend

News | Published:

More than 700 free tickets to over 40 Island attractions will be given away in the first Jersey Big Weekend organised by Visit Jersey next month.

The event, which runs on 28 and 29 March, is intended to kick-start the visitor season by encouraging Islanders to spread the word about what the Island offers, according to Visit Jersey’s chief executive, Keith Beecham.

‘It really is as good as it sounds – residents can bid for free tickets at until 8th March. The winners are selected by ballot, so there are plenty of reasons to bid for as many different attractions and activities as possible. You never know what you might win, and how much fun you could be having,’ he said.

There is no limit to the number of attractions – including, for example, include Jersey Adventures, Jersey Zoo, Valley Adventure Centre, Jump Jersey and La Mare Wine Estate – that Islanders can express interest in before 8 March when the ballot will allocate a pair of tickets to the winning households. The event is sponsored by Jersey Telecom which is offering the latest Samsung Galaxy A51 for the best selfie from the weekend posted on social meeting using #JTJerseybigweekend.

Tamara O’Brien, JT’s group head of customer experience, explained that JT’s world-class connectivity was crucial to many Jersey attractions because it enabled virtual tours, WiFi hotspots and leading edge online ticketing systems. ‘That’s why The Jersey Big Weekend is the perfect partnership for us to celebrate our beautiful Island and all it has to offer, as well as see how technology is enabling this,’ she said.
