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 the city of Birmingham like never before, and take on a selection of exciting activities with a Buckt Box.

Delivery is included, and there are no extra fees or hidden costs to complete the activities.

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.

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:

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.

How do I give Buckt to someone as a gift?

When you purchase, please specify whether this is a gift in the ‘notes’ section.

If you are purchasing a box as a gift, you can either:

  1. Get the box delivered to your address, and then physically give them the box. To do this, you will simply need to provide your details.
  2. If you want the box to be delivered directly to the gift recipient and it’s a surprise, please provide their details in all sections apart from where it asks for an email address. An automated email gets sent after you sign up, and this will spoil the surprise if it gets sent to them. If it’s not a surprise, feel free to include their email address.

If you have any questions, you can contact us directly on poppy@buckt.uk.

Please note, if you purchase a Buckt Box as a gift, you will be automatically signed up to a subscription. You can transfer this subscription to the gift recipient, or manually cancel the subscription after.

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.
