Win tickets to the Mini United festival


We don't usually post anything on a Sunday, but we have a competition running for just one week - to win five pairs of tickets to the Mini United festival.

It takes place at Silverstone from 22nd to 24th May 2009, with music from the likes of Paul Weller, Twisted Wheel and Calvin Harris, along with a long list of Mini-related fun. That includes the chance to drive your own Mini around Silverstone (or as a passenger in the Mini Challenge race), classic Mini racing, plenty of exhibitions, stunt shows, go-kart racing, driver training and if you like, a tour of the Mini factory at nearby Oxford. Loads of other Minis old and new too, which goes without saying and much more more. Visit for the full breakdown.

Tickets are £35 in advance, with plenty of space (for up to 10,000) to camp on site too. But if you want a pair of tickets free, we have five pairs to give away (along with some bits and pieces of Mini memorabilia, which might come in handy during the day). Follow the link below to enter - we'll draw the winners on Sunday 17th May, leaving plenty of time to get the tickets to you.

Win retro radios and limited edition vinyl boxsets with The Boat That Rocked


(c) 2009 Universal Studios. All Rights Reserved

To celebrate the release of Richard Curtis' new comedy The Boat That Rocked (in cinemas April 1st), we are offering five lucky people the chance to get their hands on a retro radio and 7-inch Collectors Box Set of the movie soundtrack!

Directed by Richard Curtis and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Nick Frost, Rhys Ifans and Gemma Arterton, The Boat That Rocked is a comedy set on the high seas in the 1960s, when pirate radio DJs play pop music illegally to a huge teen audience of around 25 million, much to the anguish of the authorities and the government.

If you want to find out more about the movie, check out the official website here. And if you want to enter the competition to win the radio and the limited edition soundtrack (including the likes of  The Who, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, and David Bowie), it's hosted over on Modculture. Just follow the link below to get your name in the draw.
