Entries for this competition are now closed. We'll be announcing the shortlist soon, so keep checking back or follow us on Twitter to find out more!

Just like Wicked’s Elphaba believes ‘everyone deserves the chance to fly’, at WST we believe everyone deserves the chance to travel. Whilst we are lucky enough to organise school trips with many amazing teachers and school groups, we understand that not everyone gets to go on a school trip. It’s very important to us that these people are not forgotten about!

We’re giving you the chance to take your students on the trip of a lifetime to London, courtesy of WST. Your group will see Wicked performed live on London’s West End, followed by a two-course dinner and transport there and back. You’ll also get free time to explore during the day.

A trip to our beautiful capital city is a remarkable experience for all! And when it comes to West End shows, they don’t come much bigger and better than Wicked.

WST have had a long running, successful partnership with Wicked, with it being a firm favourite for many of our groups. This much is clear from their recent win of Best Theatre Production for Schools at the School Travel Awards - an award sponsored by WST.

Alongside this, WST were awarded Best School Tour Operator 2016/17, a remarkable achievement for both companies. In light of our recent success this trip to London is set to be an unforgettable experience!

How to enter

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is fill in the quick form on the right hand side of this page, telling us why your pupils deserve to win.

Maybe they’ve been working really hard all year and deserve some recognition or reward. Perhaps they’ve spent time helping out in their local community and deserve something back. Or maybe they’ve just always dreamt of seeing a West End show but have never had the chance!

Tell us why, in 200 words or less, your pupils deserve the chance to travel, and don’t forget to include a photograph too – this can be of anything you think will help you win.

Entries will close at 11.59pm on Sunday 12th February.  After this date the no further entries to the competition will be permitted. The best entries will be entered into a shortlist which will then go out to a public vote.

Good luck!
