Win tickets to a show of your choice at the National Theatre on the South Bank this summer!

Located on London’s South Bank, next to the river, the National Theatre is the perfect destination to see some of the summer’s hottest theatre. Its three air-conditioned auditoriums offer a fantastic range of shows to choose from, seven days a week. And there’s plenty more to enjoy at the National Theatre, with riverside restaurants and bars, backstage tours suitable for all the family, a choice of shopping, and much more. You can also take in an extra performance before or after the show as part of Watch This Space, the free festival of outdoor theatre and entertainment which runs all summer long.

We have teamed up with the National Theatre to offer six of our readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to any of these hit productions:
