THERE will be free entry to a Midlands theme park this weekend - but there is a catch.

Staffordshire-based Drayton Manor Park is celebrating the birth of the royal baby with free entry this weekend, but only for namesakes of baby Archie.

The park is inviting visitors young and old who share the same name as the new arrival into the park free of charge, May 11 – 12.

Lucky Archies will simply have to state their name at the gate and bring a form of photo identification to claim their free day pass to the park.

It was earlier announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have named their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

William Bryan, managing director at Drayton Manor Park, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Archies to the park this weekend to celebrate the birth of the beautiful baby boy.

“It’s always exciting to welcome a new royal baby into the world, and we wish Meghan and Harry the best of luck – hopefully we’ll be seeing them in Thomas Land next year for Archie’s first birthday!”

Terms and condition can be found on the theme park's website.
