To be in with a chance of winning, visitors to the City Centre simply have to make a purchase at one of the participating City Centre business and fill in their details on the back of one of the Golden Tickets to be found in store before the closing date of December 20.

"The competition is a great way of reminding shoppers how lucky we are to have so many unique business offering great service, quality goods and a lovely shopping experience, in the heart of Swansea."

Amelia Rudman, Projects Manager with Swansea BID, said: “We are very pleased to bring the Golden Ticket competition back to Swansea City Centre this year. As you can imagine, it is one of our most popular events of the year, since the prize is such an attractive one. More importantly though, The competition is a great way of reminding shoppers how lucky we are to have so many unique business offering great service, quality goods and a lovely shopping experience, here in the heart of Swansea City Centre.

“These are challenging times for high streets across the UK and it is vital that we do all we can to support hard-working businesses and to help them survive and thrive. Shopping locally for your Christmas goods is a great way of doing this, whether you want to pick up a new party look or gift from Spencer Morgan, Blue Banana, or Mint Clothing, or refresh your style at Fresh Look Salon, Celly’s or Figaro’s. One of Swansea’s real strengths is that we have both the larger chains offering great goods, alongside hidden gems, to be found in places like High Street Arcade, Picton Arcade and Shopper’s Walk, and I would encourage shoppers who haven’t visited those spots for a while to do so – they are crammed full of real festive finds at this time of the year.”
