 Find a Golden Ticket to win tickets for Glastonbury, Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Reading or Leeds

BBC Radio 1 has announced a national ‘Treasure Hunt’ competition where four ‘Golden Tickets’ will be hidden in four different locations around the UK.

The hunt begins at 7:30am this Thursday, when Greg James will gradually reveal clues to help listeners find a ticket throughout the Breakfast Show.

The first person to find a golden ticket will win a pair of tickets to Glastonbury, Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Reading & Leeds next summer. (Presumably Reading or Leeds as they both happen on the same weekend!)

There’s only one winner, so after the first envelope is found, the other three will be destroyed.

Tickets for Glastonbury’s 50th-anniversary next June sold out in just 34 minutes earlier this month, with 50 pairs held back to be sold in a special ballot.

Another pair of Glasto 2020 tickets is currently up for grabs in a Waterstones competition to celebrate the release of Glastonbury 50, the official book celebrating the 50th anniversary of the festival.

Anyone who pre-orders a copy of Glastonbury 50 from before midnight on Wednesday 30th October will be entered into the competition for two general admission Glastonbury 2020 tickets.

Waterstones currently have Glastonbury 50 priced at £24.99 with free delivery or store collection available. An exclusive edition signed by organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, priced at £30, has now sold out.

Co-author and Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis said: “Working on this book has been a fantastic project for me and my dad in the fallow year and in the build-up to this year’s Festival. With our 50th anniversary fast approaching, we felt now was the time to put all of our memories and stories together in one place.

“It’s been a total joy to look back through piles of old photo albums and scrapbooks and to reflect upon what it meant at the time, and the incredible evolution of the event. I hope people who’ve been over the years will be able to reminisce and get a flavour of the rich history of Glastonbury through five amazing decades.”
