Posted on: 23 Dec 2021

It's competition time, theatre fans!


As another year comes to a close, Bristol's premier theatre venue is preparing to bring some more of the world's most spectacular stage shows to Westcountry audiences in early 2022.


The Bristol Hippodrome will be showing the latest production of Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker from Tuesday 1 to Saturday 5 February, as part of a glittering Winter/Spring season.


Ahead of the show's arrival, we've got two pairs of tickets to give away for the opening night, kicking off at 19:30 on Tuesday 1. Read on to find out how you could be in with a chance of winning!



Returning to Bristol's premier theatre venue for the first time in nine years, Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker promises to serve up classical wit and magical fantasy, tied together with Tchaikovsky's glorious score.


The show follows central character Clara's bittersweet journey from a darkly comic Christmas eve at Dr Dross' Orphanage, through a shimmering winter wonderland to the candy kingdom of Sweetieland, influenced by the iconic aesthetics of 1930s Hollywood.


Recognised in 2019 with the Special Olivier Award, Sir Matthew Bourne has produced some of the most successful dance productions of the 21st century.


His returning Nutcracker is sure to be a theatrical highlight of 2022 for the Bristol Hippodrome, and we're giving you the chance to WIN two tickets to its opening night.
