South Bank Super Prize

On the 30th August I was lucky (super lucky, in fact) and I received an email informing me that I had won the South Bank Super Prize; the biggest competition that the South Bank had ever run with 15 different prizes for just one winner! The prizes included a three course dinner at Chino Latino, vouchers for YO! Sushi, Wagamama, Giraffe and Feng Sushi, a champagne experience on the London Eye and a whole host of theatre tickets.

At first I thought it was a con, some silly office prank, but when I replied to accept my prize I was instantly put in touch with someone at the Queen Elizabeth Hall who began booking me in for a series of shows to the Unlimited Festival. Let me get this straight, this kind of thing never happens to me; I’ve only won one thing in my life and that was a £20 voucher for guessing how many sweets were in a jar when I was a child. The first opportunity I got, I called my best friend and screamed down the phone to him in the style of a contestant who got through to the live shows on a  TV talent show.
