Re-Live Bridget Jones + Daniel Cleaver’s Iconic ‘Full Blown Mini-Break’ As Streaming Service NOW Celebrates 20th Anniversary
Re-live Bridget Jones and Daniel Cleaver’s iconic ‘full blown mini-break’ - Streaming service NOW celebrates 20th anniversary of iconic film Bridget Jones’s Diary
According to Bridget Jones, when a boyfriend commits to a “full-blown mini- break…it’s a sign of true love!”. It’s been 20 years since Bridget Jones’s Diary premiered in UK cinemas and to celebrate the anniversary streaming service NOW is giving fans the opportunity to book a stay in the actual suite where Bridget and Daniel enjoyed their romantic and hilarious getaway.
As well as staying in the suite and grounds at Stoke Park Hotel where the film was shot, NOW has added a host of Bridget touches to its “full blown mini-break” package, offering fans a soft- top Mercedes convertible to take for a spin, complimentary Chardonnay and ice-cream (not to be enjoyed “all by yourself”), bunny ears and of course some “absolutely enormous” pants.
News of the themed stays comes after new research* today reveals that almost three-quarters (73%) of Brits can’t wait to book a break away and spend quality time with their partner, after lockdown had impacted their relationship.
However you don’t have to be a “smug married couple” to apply, any Bridget fans that want to recite Yeats by the lake or recreate Bridget’s famous windswept look in the passenger seat of a classic convertible can simply apply via ballot.
There will be 20 free* overnight stays for two available to celebrate the 20 th anniversary. The first ten slots will be released in a ballot on 7 th April and the remaining ten will be released on 3rd May. Please note NOW’s Bridget Mini-Break stays will take place once government guidelines allow in June and August.
