Prepare for a £200 post-lockdown blowout!

If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll bag £200 to spend at any independent in the Merrion Centre – and boy are you in for a treat! Vinyl lovers will find themselves right at home at Jumbo Records. Rock, indie, pop – they have every genre covered. And if you want to turn up the heat, head to The Chilli Shop where you’ll find 49 of the most pain-inducing sauces featured on cult YouTube channel, Hot Ones. Alternatively, you can pimp your mobile at Leeds Phone Hub, upgrade your camera kit at Dale Photographic or get your kicks fixed at Natural Born Cobblers.

For the fellas out there who’ve been missing their regular groomings, the Merrion Centre has it covered. Ambassador is one of the coolest barbers in Leeds, the place to go for wet shaves, beard trims and on-trend cuts. But that’s just one of the four barber’s studios in the Merrion Centre and they all have something unique to offer. Want to make a statement? Rude Studios is back open and ready to cater for all your tattoo and piercing needs. And then there’s the food. You can do all-you-can-eat sushi at Blue Sakura, feast on a Korean BBQ at Bulgogi Grill or sit down to a steaming bowl of ramen from Fuji Hiro – all in a safe, socially-distanced environment, of course. Or why not grab and go? Coffee at Konga? Chippy dinner from Hook & Line? You name it, they’ve got it.

With so much choice, the hardest thing will be choosing where to spend your winnings, so get your entries in, cross your fingers and see if you get lucky!
