BAEC Exclusive Shopping Event Invitation - Bicester Village 19-21 Oct 2018

I did try a search to see if this had been posted already, but didn't see anything. Got this yesterday via email - anyone else had the same and planning to go or been to something similar? Seems it's invite only to 'selected' Gold and Silver members.

"The British Airways Executive Club invites you to a shopping event from the 19 to 21 October at Bicester Village, in partnership with Charles Tyrwhitt and The White Company, giving you access to exclusive offers and benefits.

Visit the Village for a unique shopping experience at more than 160 boutiques from leading fashion and lifestyle brands, including Mulberry, Temperley London and The White Company, all offering savings of up to 60% on the recommended retail price.

Register for the event now to enjoy the following benefits:
  • an additional saving of 20% (on the Village price) in participating boutiques during the Private Sale
  • double Avios collect 10 Avios for every 4 spent
  • access to The Apartment, the exclusive by-invitation-only VIP space along with a reserved parking space directly outside and gift bag
  • book Hands Free and Personal Shopping
  • free gift on purchases over 50 at Charles Tyrwhitt
  • a chance to win a Charles Tyrwhitt suit worth up to 230"

I've seen this offer posted in previous years - presumably you live within the catchment area of Bicester.

I will be in EZE those days, we would have gone as the OH really enjoyed the shopping last time we went (maybe a good thing we'll be in EZE....)
I wish they had given us a bigger window... it's a little difficult to work around some of the FTers schedule with just days notice. Should we notify BA for future mailing lists?

Oh... I guess I might be able to manage this during my LHR day stop instead of going to get a nap.
What's the quickest way to get there from LHR and back? Hex to Paddington -> Marylbone-> Bicester on Chiltern, and their shuttle?
Or get a driver?

Think the village has its own train station now so can go directly from Marylebone- no bus required!

No need for the shuttle anymore they have there own station now connected to the mall. Announcements at Marylebone and on the train are also now made in Arabic and Mandarin along with English for all the crowds heading shopping.
