The Shropshire glamping, wedding and event venue, Barnutopia, has launched a competition to win free venue hire for a wedding or other event over a weekend in Autumn 2019 for up to 30 guests worth £2,400.

The lucky winner may apply this value to higher-priced venue hire for up to 120 guests.

To enter, entrants must visit the venue's Facebook page and comment 'VENUE HIRE' on this post.

Competitions ends on April 30 at 11.45pm. Results of the competition will be announced at Barnutopia’s 2019 Spring Wedding Fayre on 6 May at 2pm.

Owners Katrina and Steve Boydon decided to run the venue hire competition to encourage couples to consider tying the knot in less traditional months.

Already taking reservations for 2022, the Boydons would like to see more couples getting married in autumn.

Katrina said: “We have had beautiful weather in October, but even if it rains, we have under-cover options.

"The event barn is huge, and our popular open-sided Dutch barn is perfect for later in the day when couples and guests want to sit around the campfire and chat until the early hours.”

In August 2017, the first licensed wedding at Barnutopia featured on ITV’s Give It A Year with Baroness Karren Brady. A film crew monitored progress for a year during set-up as a wedding and event venue.

Baroness Brady visited the site several times and attended the first wedding. She pronounced Barnutopia a 'British business success story'.
