Ian Fleming Birthday Competition

Today, on what would have been Ian Fleming’s 111th birthday, we’re celebrating by teaming up with Secret Cinema and Aston Martin to offer one lucky Bond fan the chance to win two exceptional prizes.


First up is a high-octane Aston Martin driving experience day for two, hosted by 007 stunt driver and The Stig, Ben Collins.  As well as hot laps around the hill circuit there will be an evasive driving element to the day, providing training for any future secret missions.  Entrants must have a full UK driving licence, be available this Saturday 1st June and be able to travel to Millbrook near Milton Keynes, UK.  Lunch and refreshments will be provided.


The second prize is two tickets to the red carpet gala opening of Secret Cinema’s Casino Royale on 12th June.  In a secret London location, the doors will be opened to the iconic world of James Bond, brought to life beyond any film-lover’s imagination.  Spend your evening sipping martinis while scoping out the casino or unravel the dark underworld of the most infamous criminal organisations.  Witness the most memorable moments spill out of the screen and unfold around you as the night culminates in a unique screening of Casino Royale.  This is an evening not to be missed.


All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to email the answer to the question below to enquiries@ianfleming.com before midnight tonight (00:00 BST 29/05/19).  Entrants must be available on 1st and 12th June.  Please see below for full terms and conditions.
