The ballot is open now and closes on the 6th September. Successful bidders will be notified of any tickets they have secured by the 10th September and the tickets can be used from September 18 for a month…and beyond.

The summer may be nearing its end, but that does not mean the fun has to stop! With the county boasting dry and mild weather throughout the autumn, it is the perfect time to venture outside and explore some more.

From August 18, residents from Essex, Kent and East Sussex can enter a ballot to be in with a chance of securing free tickets and vouchers for popular attractions, hotel and restaurants – from Colchester Zoo, Escape Live and Chelmsford City Racecourse, to open-top bus tours of Clacton, cream teas at Tiptree Tea Rooms, white water rafting at Lee Valley and trips to Colchester Castle. They are just a few of the attractions, cafes, pubs and accommodation giving free access this autumn, with pairs of tickets and family tickets valid from September 18 for a month…and beyond.

Whether you are grandparents keen to take grandchildren out for a day away from the crowds, a couple looking for a romantic midweek date or a family intent on making up for lost time, there is something for everyone in the Essex Bigger Weekend ballot.
