Free Fun With Fantastic Mr Fox!

 Looking for something to entertain the whole family this summer in Greater Manchester?  System One Travel has just the thing!  For 5 days at the beginning of July, the stage at The Lowry in Salford Quays will be transformed into a battlefield between man and animal, as Fantastic Mr Fox takes on a trio of local greedy farmers.


To celebrate the centenary year of the great British storyteller and poet, Roald Dahl’s classic tale is being brought to life with live music and colourful set design that is guaranteed to delight young and old.  Original songs and energetic acting tell the story of Fantastic Mr Fox’s clever schemes to steal livestock from the neighbouring farmers to feed his hungry family.

However, fed up of being the victims of Fantastic Mr Fox’s tricks, farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean hatch a plan to put a stop to his cunning antics.  Who will win?  You’ll have to take a trip to The Lowry from 5th to 9th July to find out.  There are morning shows, matinees and evening performances to suit cubs and old hounds alike.

System One Travel is excited to be able to offer a FREE family ticket for 4 people to the premier performance of Fantastic Mr Fox at The Lowry on July 5th in our fabulous competition.

Even if you aren’t the lucky winner of the family ticket to see Fantastic Mr Fox, you can still be in with a chance of winning one of our runner-up prizes - a FREE one-day travelcard to help get you to The Lowry. 

While you’re there, use your System One travelcard or get me there smartcard to get 10% off at the gift shop and coffee and cake for £5 in the Tower Coffee Shop.

According to Roald Dahl, “No one outfoxes a fox!” so we’ve made the competition really simple to enter. Just pop over to the System One Travel Facebook page and like and comment on the competition post. The winner will need to be available to collect tickets from The Lowry box office half an hour before curtain up at 7pm on the 5th of July.

We know that while clever Mr Fox is visiting The Lowry, he’ll no doubt be using a System One travelcard to get around Greater Manchester safely and cheaply on a huge range of bus services.  If you’re popping along to see him, you can buy your own System One travelcard or upload a travelcard to your get me there smartcard for use on bus routes 24, 50, 53, 70 and 79 that stop right outside the theatre.  You won’t need to hatch a cunning plan for parking or squeezing everyone into one car.

Have a fantastic time!
