National Express has teamed up to offer one lucky Star reader the chance to win a fabulous theatre break to London - to see Billy Elliot the Musical, writes Graham Walker.

National Express has teamed up with a landmark attraction to offer a lucky Sheffield Star reader the chance to win a fabulous theatre trip to London.

First prize is a pair of tickets to see the award-winning musical at the Victoria Palace Theatre, return coach travel to London and an overnight hotel stay in the capital.

Five runners up each win a National Express travel wallet – perfect for keeping track of your holiday documents.

The UK’s largest coach operator has linked up with Billy Elliot the Musical to offer this amazing prize with The Star.

The multi award-winning Billy Elliot the Musical is inspired by the film of the same name, which features the young protagonist travelling to London on a National Express coach to pursue his dream of becoming a ballet dancer.

National Express operates around 17 million passenger journeys a year, approximately a third of which are to airports, making it easy for people to take full advantage of summer both home and abroad.

As summer is fully underway National Express is reminding people wanting to go a bit further afield that it operates airport services 24/7, taking people straight to the airport door. Direct services operate daily from Sheffield Coach Station to Heathrow, Stansted and Luton Airports. National Express has recently added new airport services from Sheffield Coach Station, including two new daily services to Stansted Airport.

National Express is also reminding people its low-cost fares, which remain affordable right up to the day of travel, afford people the freedom to be spontaneous with travel choices.
