Grand Knight of fun

Fancy a chance of free tickets to see one of the country’s funniest musicals?

Then get thee to a shrubbery!

Eric Idle’s Spamalot rides into Blackpool Grand Theatre for a week from Monday April 18 starring Phill Jupitus, Jodie Prenger and Todd Carty (above) and there are free tickets up for grabs for the Fylde coast’s finest shrubbery.

Spamalot invades the resort from April 18 to 23 telling the hilarious tale of King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail.

But the terrifyingly tall Knights Who Say Ni (it makes sense when you see it!) demand a “shwubbery” from Arthur before he is allowed to pass through their forest. Can you aid him in his crazy quest?

Simply send in a picture of yourself/selves with a sophisticated piece of shrubbery – preferably a “nice one, that’s not too expensive” – and you could win SIX tickets for the opening night of Spamalot on Monday April 18.

And five lucky runners up will win a tin of Spam!

So pop down to your local garden centre, scour an upmarket residential area or step into your own back garden and get snapping! (No shrubberies must be harmed of course – the Knights Who Say Ni won’t like it.)

Email your entries to before 10am on Monday April 11 and they will be displayed in glorious technicolor on the Grand Theatre’s website. The winner will be picked later that day.
