WIN! A luxury overnight stay and tickets to English National Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Albert Hall

Posted on May 22, 2014


WIN! – a pair of tickets to Romeo and Juliet and a night at top London hotel The Gore Hotel, including a three-course dinner, on Saturday, June 14 (eve).


Following the huge success of Swan Lake, English National Ballet returns to the Royal Albert Hall in 2014 with Romeo and Juliet. Derek Deane’s epic in-the-round production, drenched in passion and tragedy with Prokofiev’s evocative and powerful score at its heart, has been acclaimed by critics and audiences alike. Set among the hustle and bustle, street fighting and rivalry of Renaissance Verona, with all its decadent richness and grandeur, this magnificent staging is brought to life by a company of more than 120 dancers, actors and swordfighters.

Romeo and Juliet runs from June 11 to 22 2014 at the Royal Albert Hall. For more information and to book tickets, call 020 7838 3100 or visit

The prize includes a three-course meal for two, and an overnight stay at The Gore Hotel. Adjacent to Kensington Gardens, this luxurious award-winning hotel is within walking distance of the Royal Albert Hall.
