The National Trust have asked us to find 5 Mumsnetters to take part in The National Trust Great British Days Out experience during the summer holidays. They'd like 5 families in search of fun to go along to a National Trust property and film their day.

This is what the National Trust say about Great British Days Out: "This summer we've got plenty of events and activities taking place for the whole family to enjoy. Whether it's dressing up days, trails or performances there's something for everyone. We'd like to find out how you would make the most of a day out at a National Trust property and would love for you to help us."

This is open to all UK MNers who are available at some point during the summer holidays to visit a National Trust property with their DCs.

The 5 selected MNers will receive some info from the National Trust suggesting good places to go in their area. You will also receive a Kodak PlayFull video camera, worth £99.99, to film your family's day out (which you get to keep!) and a £50 National Trust voucher.

Selected MNers will then need to come back to MN and give their feedback on their experiences on a thread, as well as sending your footage to the National Trust. The footage may be used for marketing purposes and may appear on the National Trust website and possibly elsewhere.

Please note shortlisted MNers will be asked to email MN a short film (eg filmed on a mobile or digital camera) of themselves and their family who would visit the NT property prior to the final film makers being selected. This is in no way a beauty parade, we just want to ensure we get a good mix of folks and ones who come across well on camera. If you are unable to send in a film you can send in a recent photo of the family.

If you're interested in taking part, please sign up here.

If you are not selected but would still like to be in with a chance of winning your own Great British Day Out, you can visit the National Trust Facebook App

Thanks and good luck!
