All you need to do is create a themed day out in London, based on your favourite current West End character and become a STAR FOR A DAY!

If you have a blog then you can be in with the chance to win a brilliant day out in London for you and a friend.

The winning entry will get to see their London character itinerary bought to life for them and a friend with a night’s stay in a West End hotel.

The winner of the competition will be the most creative and entertaining Star for a Day itinerary and blog post. Hotel Direct’s marketing team will choose the top entries which will be hosted on the website for the public to vote for and choose who wins the prize.
