FAQs

What is Buckt?

Buckt is the UK’s only tickets and activities subscription box. Every month subscribers get 5 mystery things to do in their region delivered straight to their door in one of our Buckt Boxes.
From cinema tickets to sumo suit wrestling, restaurants to rage rooms, each box is crafted by our expert team and includes an eclectic mix of the brilliant and bizarre, as well as the tried and tested.
On average, our boxes include tickets and activities that would cost around £40-50pp if bought separately. So a Duo Package would be worth £80-100, but cost just £25. We frequently exceed this target, sometimes delivering boxes with activities worth up to £80pp!
The business, which is inspired by the idea of a bucket list, aims to help subscribers tick something off their list, to go on an adventure and to fall in love with something new.
Step out of your comfort zone, explore your city like never before, and take on a selection of exciting activities with a Buckt Box.

How long do I have to complete the activities in my box?

UPDATED OCTOBER 2018

Example:

If you get the October box, you have until the last day of November to complete the activities, however must be booked in with the activity provider by the 14th November.

Where does Buckt operate? Where are the activities?

Please note that Buckt currently only operates in the Greater Birmingham area and Greater Manchester area.

This means that all activities will be within these regions (usually no further than a 20-30 minute drive away from Birmingham City Centre or Manchester City Centre respectively).

If you are from outside this area, you are still more than welcome to subscribe, but please be conscious of where our activities are likely to be.

Be the first to find out about our expansions into new regions by connecting with us on Facebook and Twitter.

When will the payment be taken out?

An initial payment will be taken straight away and this is for your first box, which you will receive at the beginning of the following month.

Your next payment will be taken out on the first day of the month of your next box (i.e. the payment for April’s box will come out on the 1st April).

You will then be charged every month on the first day of the month of your box.

Scenario:

  • If you’ve subscribed on the 17th April, an initial payment will come out on the 17th April. This will be for your first box, which you will receive in May. Your next payment after that will come out on the 1st June, and that will be for your June box.

Can I take someone other than the named second person to activities?

Yes! You are free to take whoever you want as the additional person, and you can also give your ticket to someone else if you can’t make an activity.

When booking, you will need to provide your name as the ‘lead subscriber’ name, but can then list the names of the people in attendance. Our team may reach out to double check if the names are unfamiliar, but once this is verified we will complete the booking for you.

When will my box be delivered?

Your box will be dispatched on the last day of the month that you signed up, and you will receive the box by the 3rd day of the following month.

For new subscribers, your first box will be received on the 3rd day of the following month that you subscribed.

Scenario:

  • You subscribe on the 8th August. Your first box will be dispatched on the 31st August and will be received by the 3rd September. Your next box will be received by the 3rd October. And so on.

It seems really low cost - are there any hidden charged?

There are no additional charges or hidden fees.

You pay your subscription fee and receive 5 activities that you can go and complete. These activities are all included for the amount you pay for the subscription, and you don’t have to pay anything extra.

Do you have a package specifically for businesses?

Yes! Our corporate offer is £12.50 per box for 5 activities. These boxes can be distributed to staff as rewards, can be used together as staff nights out or given to clients as a ‘thank you’ gift.

If I get a group of my mates/colleagues to sign up, will we get a discount?

Please get in contact with poppy@buckt.uk to discuss this further. Depending on group size, we may be able to offer a discount.

There's talk of Buckt being inspired by the idea of a bucket list. What does this mean?

The idea was originally inspired by our founder’s bucket list. It contained 100 activities – both big cliche bucket list activities, and small personal challenges.

Our founder Dan, spoke to different people about their own bucket lists and realised that they weren’t just about ticking things off a piece of paper, but actually pushing yourself to the limit, falling in love with something new, having an escape from routine and ultimate living life to its fullest.

These ideas encapsulate what Buckt is about. We want people to try new and exciting things; things they’ve never done before or even thought about doing. But actually, we want subscribers to have an escape from the humdrum of life. We want subscriber to find something that they enjoy and fall in love with it. We want subscribers to create unique memories that stick with them forever.

These were the things that motivated Dan to write his list, and have motivated him to complete what’s on it.

How can you deliver 'activities in a box'?

Easy peasy. Each box that you receive contains a specially-designed booklet that tells you what activities you can go and do during that month, as well as information on how you ‘access’ these activities. For example, you may need to book with us, we may provide physical tickets inside the booklet, or you may need to book directly with the activity provider.

If I can't find exactly what I want or have any specific requests, can I contact you?

Yes! We’re more than happy to take specific requests and we will try to accommodate you to the best of our ability/as much as is practically possible.

Am I committed to my Buckt subscription? Can I cancel?

Every subscriber gets put on to a subscription automatically, however you can cancel this at any time. You must give us a weeks notice before your next box is due, and can cancel by emailing poppy@buckt.uk.
