Basingstoke Together has the perfect antidote to the post Christmas blues, a family break in the town. Up for grabs are tickets to Sleeping Beauty at the celebrated Anvil and an overnight stay at the four-star Hampshire Court Hotel.

The end of season panto marks a spectacular finale to Basingstoke’s action packed festive season with real reindeers, a Santa parade, Christmas grottos, markets and shopping opportunities galore at the town’s award winning Festival Place shopping centre, The Malls and the historic - Top of the Town.

The lucky prize winners will enjoy a magical early evening performance of Sleeping Beauty starring Sue Holderness as the Bad Fairy (Only Fools and Horses), Katrina Bryan (CBeebies’ Nina and the Neurons) as Sleeping Beauty and Sarah-Jane Buckley (Hollyoaks) as the Good Fairy on 28 December 2016.

They will also be treated to an overnight stay at the Hampshire Court Hotel. One of QHotels’ family-friendly properties, the ideal base for exploring historic Basingstoke – with attractions like the current Alice in Wonderland exhibition at the Willis Museum to a step back in time experience at the interactive Milestones Museum. There’s also historical walks including one which retraces the footsteps of the town’s famous daughter, Jane Austen.

With everything families need for a fun-filled break, the hotel offers a range of features designed especially for parents and children including: an indoor games room, separate kid’s swimming pool and dedicated children’s activity room complete with giant bean bags, Nintendo Wii and iPads.

And while the children play, parents can unwind in the recently refurbished Time Out Lounge - open day and night - and take advantage of the hotel’s luxury on-site spa, Health Club and restaurant, all surrounding the hotel’s picturesque courtyard.

Competition closes on 22 December 2016.
