Purchase any new Canon Digital SLR, Mirrorless or Compact Camera from Park Cameras, and you'll automatically be entered into a prize draw to win one of three Hot Air Ballooning flights from Virgin Experiences!

To celebrate the launch of a fantastic new Canon area in Park Cameras in Burgess Hill, we are offering customers the chance to see the world from an unforgettable new perspective aboard a Hot Air Balloon!

Since opening our Burgess Hill store in 2008, thousands of customers have visited and have been able to try out an unprecedented number of photographic products all under one roof. We have taken a significant investment to completely redevelop the Canon area of the store, with the aim to improve the shopping experience that our customers receive when visiting, and to showcase the latest products across the Canon range of Digital SLRs, Mirrorless and compact cameras, lenses, printers, and video range.

When visiting the store, you’ll find that the Canon area has been designed in such a way that you’ll be able to try out the range of products with ease, and find the correct product for your needs. Within the area, you’ll find a 3D display of hot air balloons designed to help test out the current range of cameras, as well as a comfortable seating area where our expert team can go through any product in further detail.

We think that this new area truly sets Park Cameras apart from any other photo retailer in the UK with the ‘touch-and-try’ offering that we can provide.

Upon purchasing any Canon camera between 07.06.17 and 31.07.17, you’ll be automatically entered into a prize draw with the chance to win one of three Hot Air Balloon Flights.


About the Prize:

Take to the skies in this 60 minute hot air balloon adventure, where you’ll be able to breathe in spectacular 360 degree panoramas and uninhibited views for miles in all directions, all the while experiencing a unique sense of freedom. Available seven days a week, with a choice of over 100 locations around the UK to choose from, this will be a great opportunity to grab your new Canon camera and get ready for some sensational photo opportunities.

Once you’ve touched back down on terra firma, you’ll toast your landing in style together with a glass of Champagne each and a certificate signed by your pilot and endorsed by Sir Richard Branson. You’ll then be collected from your landing spot and whisked back to base to conclude your memorable experience. To make the memories last even longer, you’ll also receive a gift hamper complete with sparkling wine and chocolates.
