Win lunch with Marcus Butler!
That's right. Just you and Marcus chatting over lunch. Best friends forever.
Many will enter. Only one will win (but they will be allowed to bring one guest). An exclusive opportunity in a secret London location. Will it be Camden? Will it be Islington? Added elements of mystery and intrigue to what is already a fantastic prize! (But seriously, ever since Alfie Deyes' fans brought Piccadilly Circus to a standstill, we've learnt that we have to keep these locations secret. Not to take away from Alfie's fans, they were a fantastic bunch, but the bus drivers of Central London will never forgive us.)
So, if you want to be in with a chance to meet Marcus, all you have to do is preorder Hello Life! More details about the competition, including full terms and conditions, can be found below. Good luck!
Due to Marcus’s busy schedule the date of the meet and greet will be confirmed with the winner once the competition has ended, reasonable means will be used to find a date suitable for both parties but if the winner is unable to make the dates and times offered, or otherwise declines the Prize, the prize will be passed onto another entrant. The prize will be fulfilled by September 2015. Transport costs of up to £50 for both the prize winner and their guest will be provided to help cover mainland UK travel. Proof of transport cost must be provided for reimbursement. Please note accommodation is not included.
Once agreed, details of the exact time and date of the meet and greet are to remain strictly confidential until after the meet and greet has taken place. Any unauthorised sharing of the date and time of the prize will result in the cancellation of the Prize.
