popcorn prizes

To celebrate our Mini Movies winning movie, our friends at Diva snacks have very kindly given us some free boxes of their natural, healthy popcorn to giveaway to 10 lucky winners.


Every bag is under 100kcal, air popped (which is much better than oil fryed) and there are 4 tasty recipes to choose from (Sweet Chipotle Chilli, Rock Salt, 3 Cheese and Sea Salt and Balsamic Vinegar)


All you need to do to bagsy yourself a box for you and your friends is tell us what your diva demand would be below.

Fresh towels in your dressing room, only yellow vegetables, no eye contact from waiting staff, that sort of thing.

Post your answers below by Wednesday 25th and we'll announce the winners here then.

Big well dones to last week’s competition winners Steve B, Wendy B, Lauren L, Jane, Heather, Pauline, Mrs. Shelley and Jo. Boxes of Diva popcorn winging their way to very soon.

operation doh

If you live in Bristol and haven't made your lunch yet for tomorrow, then get this mission int your diary


The chaps at Thoughtful and howies are putting on a free picnic of a tasty sandwich (from Bristol based Friska cafe) and one of our smoothies to help promote Real Bread Maker Week via the wonder that is Doh Boy.


Doh Boy's mission in life is to campaign for bread to be made without any added fat or any other weird stuff.

You can find out more here or by going along to the picnic.

First 150 people there get free lunch.

So hotfoot it over there for midday tomorrow or you'll just be left with the crumbs.

totally mint


Having taken the world of natural gum by storm, our friends Dan and Mike at Peppersmith are now branching out into mints that are as kind to your teeth as your breath.

They've very nicely sent us a few boxes to give away.

All you need to do to bagsy yourself one is answer this simple question
