Birmingham business Buckt set for Greater Manchester expansion

Buckt Founder Daniel Bridgewater pitching at the Baldwins Kickstart business competition

Birmingham business Buckt is set to expand in to Greater Manchester and the North over the coming months after a rapid period of growth in the West Midlands.

The brainchild of Birmingham entrepreneur Daniel Bridgewater, Buckt is the UK’s only tickets and activities subscription box and – according to the company – the first of its kind in the world.

Every month subscribers across the West Midlands have received 5 mystery tickets to attractions in the region, including unusual activities such as rage rooms, sumo suit wrestling and alpaca walking.

Buckt has become a key part of the Birmingham business scene and has been listed in the ‘101 Top Tech Start Ups’ in the region, as well as being included in the Mills and Reeve ‘Innovation 50’.

As well as this, Founder Daniel won the prestigious Future Face of Entrepreneurship at the Birmingham Chamber Future Faces Awards and was shortlisted in the Young Achiever category at the Birmingham Awards – two of Birmingham’s leading business ceremonies.

This unique brand of fun, which has been enjoyed by over 1500 recipients since their launch in January 2017, is now set to move to the North.

“Buckt is for those people who are fed up of doing the same old thing each and every week.”

He continued: “we’ve been overwhelmed by how well-received it’s been in the West Midlands, and we’re excited to introduce it to the incredible people of Greater Manchester and to work with some of the amazing attractions in the region”.

Paul, a Risk Manager from Birmingham who subscribes with six of his friends said: “When the box arrives, we genuinely get excited about it. Historically, we’d always say that we should do more activities but never got around to it. Now we’ve got a list of prepaid things ready to go!”

With classic activities such as trampoline parks, escape rooms and rock climbing centres lined up, as well hidden gems and innovative never-before-seen experiences, the team promise a “fun, unique and memorable” time for all who give it a go.

Buckt launches in Greater Manchester in January 2019. Order before 17th December for a Christmas delivery. Standard subscriptions and gift boxes available.
