If, like me, you’d never heard of Prosecco Country until this very second but now want nothing more than to visit this idyllic paradise, then you’re in luck.

That’s right, you can win a holiday to the Italian Prosecco Hills – as well as to a host of other incredible destinations – courtesy of the good people at Exodus Edits.

All you need to do is head down to the Science and Industry Museum this week, and put a key in a suitcase. Simple, right?



Exodus Edits is a collection of bite-size, adventure-filled holidays where you travel with a small group of like-minded people in their 30s and 40s.

The holidays have been expertly designed so they fit into your usual holiday allocation, which means you can have a proper adventure without having to quit your job and go ‘travelling’.

This Thursday, February 6th, Exodus Edits will head to the Science and Industry Museum to host an evening showcasing everything that they have on offer.

It kicks off at 6pm, and for the £5 entry fee you’ll get a complimentary drink on arrival and a key, which you’ll try out on one of a pile of suitcases in the room.

Four of these suitcases contain a holiday, and if your key opens up one of the lucky cases, well done – you’ve got yourself a free adventure holiday to one of their destinations.

They offer a wide range of holidays, including the aforementioned tasting trip to the Italian Prosecco Hills, climbing the highest mountain in North Africa, and exploring otherworldly glaciers, waterfalls, geysers and volcanoes in Iceland.

If you want to be in with a chance of winning one of these mint trips, get yourself to the event on Thursday – you can grab tickets to it here.
