'All New' Tombola Of Dreams - Tickets On Sale Now!

Last year, our two Tombolas Of Dreams raised £4,800 for the graduate show at New Designers 2014.   The prize draws were support by students, staff, alumni and friends of the course. It was a huge achievement and the show looked amazing and was an award-winning success!

This year we need to make more Islington-based magic happen for our exhibiting graduates; we need to wow the crowds, promote your course to the great and good of the design industry and create opportunities for our year three students to meet prospective employers.  

The principle of the Tombola Of Dreams is simple; every entrant is able to purchase up to 3 tickets at £10 each.  You make your purchase via the UCA online store.  I will be notified of your purchase, and soon after I will appear with a book of raffle tickets and a packet of ping pong balls; your name and number will be written on the ping pong balls - and then your balls will be added to the tombola in readiness for the big draw on Friday Dec 12th.

All money raised by students, alumni and friends of the course is used exclusively for the purpose of funding New Designers.  Any money not spent is carried over to next year's total.  Effectively, you are funding your own show - even if you're in year one and your graduate show seems like a distant speck on the horizon.   Invest now, and invest in your own future successes.

More prizes will be announced over the coming weeks, but so far in our Tombola Of Dreams we have assembled for your delight and delectation...

More prizes announced as they're confirmed!

So, go here to the online store to purchase your tickets today!  Friends and family can also donate this way - by purchasing tickets, but notifying me that they're happy not to be added into the prize draw.  All support of this important, transformative event is warmly welcomed.
