Win a family ticket to see stage adaptation of The Elephantom By Ross Collins

elephantomRoss Collins’ wonderful picture book ‘The Elephantom’ (which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal) has been turned into a theatre piece by the same puppeteers behind the adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s ‘War Horse’ and at the end of this month it opens at the New London Theatre (Drury Lane, London). We’re delighted that we’ve got two sets of The Elephantom family tickets to giveaway (details below).

For children of 3+ and grown-ups of all ages, the story of one little girl and her larger-than-life friend is brought to life in this production of The Elephantom with puppetry, movement, dance, music and theatrical ingenuity. And to be in with a chance of winning tickets to see this show all you need to do is leave a comment on this post.

The giveaway is open for a week (ie until 5pm Friday 20th June) and 2 winners will be selected at random from those who leave a comment. Full details for the show can be found at

The winners can choose tickets for any Mon – Fri performance in July (ie between Tues 1st – Thu 31 July). The prize is two sets of family tickets – each set constitutes four individual tickets (up to 2 adults and a minimum of 2 children in a family group). The winning tickets will be available to collect from the theatre on the day.
