Win a luxurious overnight stay for two in Edinburgh, with first class travel each way!


As the summer of staycations approaches, we are all emerging from lockdowns and beginning to rediscover the amazing cities and places opening their doors across the UK. Here at MBC Arts Wellbeing, we recognise just how challenging the fifteen months have been for everyone and the toll it has taken on people's mental health. As it becomes safer and restrictions are eased, we want to give three lucky winners something to look forward to this year.


Our first prize is a spectacular overnight stay in Edinburgh for two people on Saturday 16th October 2021. We’re delighted to have partnered up with Malmaison hotels to provide you with an overnight stay at the spectacular Malmaison Edinburgh City hotel, right in the heart of the beautiful Scottish capital. This stunning hotel is surrounded by some of Scotland’s most iconic venues including the Scottish National Gallery, the National Museum of Scotland, Holyrood which houses the Scottish parliament, Edinburgh Castle and is only a short walk away from the famous Princes Street. With so many incredible galleries, museums and cultural institutions that are free to enter you’ll be spoiled for choice.



The good news doesn’t stop there as you will also be travelling in luxury too, thanks to our friends at @nationalrailcom who will be sending you on your way in first class to ensure you travel in style from Newcastle Central Station to Edinburgh Waverley for your trip. Sit back in comfort as you take in the picture-perfect views of the world-renowned North-East coastline, which is home to Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle and the beautiful beaches of Amble.




We are also offering two fantastic runner up prizes with the second-place winner receiving a £50 gift voucher to use at MBC Arts Wellbeing and third place prize winner receiving a £25 MBC Arts Wellbeing Voucher. These vouchers can be redeemed against any of our creative courses including, fused glass, handmade soaps, candle workshops and ceramics which are all designed to for you to have a fun, engaging and creative time, as well as providing you with a keepsake to take home with you.


We’ve chosen Saturday 16th October as the date for the lucky prize winners to visit Edinburgh due to its cultural significance in Scottish history. Many people throughout Scotland celebrate the contribution to literature and culture from famous poet, Robert Fergusson on this date, who is said to have inspired Scotland’s most best known poet of all, Robert Burns.
