CELEBRATING the arrival of London's biggest ever comedy festival, the Times and Reporter series are offering one reader tickets to see Perrier award-winner Rich Hall... and a crate of beer!
The Greenwich Comedy Festival, a week-long line-up of comics including Arthur Smith, Jo Brand, Sean Hughes, and Russell Howard, rolls into town from next Monday (7).
The brainchild of the late Malcolm Hardee's stepchildren Will and Cass Briggs, the event includes 30 comedy shows taking place at Greenwich Theatre, the Old Royal Naval College and Up The Creek and off-the-wall events like a silent disco, roof-top comedy and Family Festival Fun.
Arthur Smith said: "As a former Greenwich man I am thrilled to be part of the Festival. The grand surroundings of the Old Royal Naval College will be a magnificent setting for the best performers in comedy to entertain London."
Jo Brand added: "Living as I do in South London, it makes me very proud to be taking part in this Festival. It's just what London's been waiting for."
The Times and Reporter series have teamed up with the organisers to offer one reader two ticket to the Big Night Out event headlining absurdist comic Rich Hall, supported by David O'Doherty, Andrew Lawrence and Rufus Hound, on Saturday, September 12 in the grounds of the Royal Naval College.
The winner will also have a crate of Meantime Raspberry Grand Cru beer (12 bottles) delivered straight to their door (within the M25 only).
To enter, send your name, address and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winner will be picked randomly on September 3. Terms and Conditions apply.
