Competition Terms and Conditions
For information on how we use your personal data please see the Privacy Notice below.
1. The prize draw will be open at 5pm on 23rd April 2020 and close at 2pm on Thursday 30th April 2020.
2. Entry to the prize draw is by texting the keyword MUSIC to short code 81155. Text messages cost your standard network message charge (based on your service provider rates – please check with your provider). Entrants will then receive a free bounce-back message from 62345 informing them that a voluntary donation of £10 to The Big Night In will be taken 60 minutes after the entry text was received, unless they reply to 62345 with the word CANCEL before 60 minutes has passed.
3. For the avoidance of doubt, opting out of the voluntary donation will not affect your entry into the prize draw.
4. The prize draw is open to all residents of the UK (please note the text service to enter the prize draw does not include Channel Islands or Isle of Man mobile networks). The prize draw is open to those aged 18 or over, except staff members of Comic Relief and BBC Children in Need (the two charities behind the new initiative, The Big Night In) , of BBC Group, of any of the prize providers, and their close relatives, or anyone connected with the prize draw. Proof of age, identity and eligibility may be requested.
5. Please ensure you spell the Keyword correctly and send your text message to the correct Short Code within the time period that the prize draw is specified as being open. If your short code is invalid, or your text message is received outside the specified time period you will not receive a bounce-back message but may still be charged your standard network message charge. You will not be donating to The Big Night In nor will you have entered the prize draw. If you enter the Keyword incorrectly but we, acting reasonably, believe that you are trying to enter the prize draw, you will be entered into the draw and will be sent the free bounce-back message about the voluntary donation, as described above.
6. You may enter the prize draw a maximum of four times a day. If you try to enter more times than this from the same mobile telephone number in one day, you will still be charged your standard network rate, but will not be entered into the prize draw and will not be donating to The Big Night In. You will receive a free bounce-back message regarding the donation each time, and if you wish to opt out of the donation you need to respond to each such message received from 62345 with the word CANCEL.
7. If you’re a UK taxpayer, Comic Relief and BBC Children in Need can claim an equal share of an additional £2.50 in Gift Aid from the Government for every £10 donation you make. If you elect to make the donation by not opting out within 60 minutes, we’ll send a follow up text to ask if you want us to claim Gift Aid on your £10 donation. If you follow the link in our follow up text you’ll be taken to The Big Night In website to complete the Gift Aid declaration – please read it carefully. Find out more about Gift Aid here . We won’t automatically add you to any marketing databases when we send you this follow up text.
8. There is only ONE prize available to be won. The timing of each element of the prize will depend on the wider UK situation and any restrictions in place in the coming months:
– Guest invitation for you and three guests for the recording of Little Mix: The Search in London, plus backstage meet and greet: Over 16’s only. Travel to London and overnight accommodation included. Dates to be confirmed once the restrictions on activity in the UK allow for the BBC to plan the event. The winner will be offered one of a choice of dates.
