How to get a Free Blue Peter Badge & which attractions allow 2 or 3 badge holders free admission for the price of one adult

Thought it might be a good time to start applications so these arrive in time for the school holidays

My kids having Blue Peter Badges has saved me an absolute fortune over the years so I hope this can help others save too

What is a Blue Peter Badge

A Blue Peter badge is a special award given to Blue Peter viewers and fans. Badge owners can gain free entry into over 200 Blue Peter Badge Attractions around the country, like theme parks, zoos and castles.

You must be aged between 6 and 15 years old to apply for a Blue Peter badge.

Your application could be a letter, poem, picture or story for example, and must also include a message at least 50 words long, explaining which Blue Peter badge you are applying for and why you deserve to be awarded one.

Please put in as much effort as you can - make sure your application stands out from the thousands we receive!

It might take about 10 weeks for your badge to arrive,

Types of badges

Blue badges are awarded for sending in interesting letters, stories, makes, pictures, poems, good ideas for the programme, and for having appeared on Blue Peter

Green badges are awarded for sending in letters, pictures and makes that are about the environment, conservation or nature.

Silver badges are awarded to Blue badge holders who go on to make an extra effort. For example, if you won a Blue badge for an interesting letter or email, you could win a Silver badge by sending us something different such as a make, picture or a poem.

Orange badges are given to winners and runners up of Blue Peter competitions. To have a chance of winning one of these badges you have to enter a Blue Peter competition.

Purple Fan Club badges are awarded for sending in a review of a Blue Peter episode.

The Music badge is a very special badge, designed by superstar Ed Sheeran. It's awarded to those who show off their passion for music by learning a new instrument or being part of a musical performance.

To gain free entry, badge holders with a valid badge card must be accompanied by a full paying or concessionary adult. If a paying adult is accompanied by up to three children with badges and valid badge cards, free entry will be given for all children.


MY TOP TIP FOR A SUCCESSFUL BADGE APPLICATION

The saving are definitely worth putting some effort in. Get your child to hand write the letter but ensure the Name & Address are clear perhaps write them yourself.

Send photos of your child doing the task they are writing about or send a photo of what they have made something

An idea could be to use this fact sheet to make the famous Tracy Island

The badge allows free entry with a paying adult to over 200 attractions

However a big bonus is some of the attraction allow two or even 3 badge holders in for the price of one adult

Example Knowsley Safari park allows 3 badge holder in for the price of one adult

Cool. Diggerland is included and so is Blackpool
I have 2 children so I need to crack on as last year I was lazy.
Maybe it will work on top of 2 for 1 which adults can use and get the kids for free
Im going to let you into a little secret...

Ive ALWAYS wanted a Blue Peter badge since i was a kid so i hatched a plan...

In 2015 I made this bird feeder with a washing up bottle and string, sent it to Blue Peter with a letter claiming to be a 8 year old boy that looks after the birds in the winter and 2 months later ... they sent me a Blue Peter badge !!! never been so happy in all my life! Haha

Nope sadly it doesn’t work with discounted admission usually.

Can take a wait for the badges to come through so best to start early.

I always wanted a badge too but didn’t get one as a kid.

I have to admire your cunning plan

Congratulations on the badge

Disappointing that York Maze is no longer included.
