It’s a veritable smorgasbord of culture – you can rediscover the story of a little known musical genius, watch a spectacular fiesta of dance and lose yourself in a beautiful abstract piece, all without leaving your seat. Intrigued? Here’s your chance to win tickets…

Get a taste for the ballet with three shows in one night

If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll win two tickets to Northern Ballet’s Three Short Ballets on Saturday 7th September 2019. They’ve lined up a trio of delights for you, each a little different to the last, so this is the perfect introduction to ballet. Morgann Runacre-Temple’s The Kingdom of Back is a cool, quirky ballet that tells the story of Wolfgang Mozart’s overshadowed sister Nannerl. Like her brother, she’s a musical genius, but she never gets the credit she deserves. This is her story told through dance – it’s beautiful, abstract and surprisingly emotional.

That’s paired with Powerhouse Rumba. David Nixon OBE’s 2009 fiesta fuses modern ballet, Latin American dance and gymnastics to create a visual feast that fizzes with energy. This is the first time it’s been performed in 9 years, so it’s a rare treat. And to round up the trio? They have a brand new ballet from Amaury Lebrun. For an Instant explores the fleeting moments that define the human condition. It’s poetry in motion, a beautiful abstract piece that feeds on emotion.

Feast on the finest Spanish tapas before the show


You won’t just get tickets to the show, you’ll also get a scrumptious feast at Ibérica. This is Spanish tapas at its very best, so expect exquisite dishes made with fresh seasonal produce and specially imported ingredients. Their famous ham croquetas are a must. Couple them with twice-cooked lamb marinated in cherry tomatoes and red peppers from León – or go all out with a loaded plate of seafood paella for two. Why not order a bottle of wine too? After all, you’ve got £100 to spend.
