Win tickets to see children’s musical comedy

Posted onPosted on 20th Jun

A new musical adaptation of bestselling book The Queen’s Knickers is coming to Mansfield Palace Theatre — and you could be there to watch it.

We have got four tickets — two adults and two children’s — to give away in this easy-to-enter competition to see The Queen’s Knickers at the theatre on Saturday, 23rd July.

TaleGate Theatre Productions has worked with Bafta-winning author Nicholas Allan on the show. It is known for bouncy and colourful children’s musicals, having previously found success with Allan’s books. Its work includes a West End run of The Giant’s Loo Roll and annual UK tours of Father Christmas Needs a Wee!

The book The Queen’s Knickers explores the Queen’s fashions with a nod to childish humour.

Nicholas said: “Everyone can see the Queen’s smart coats and dresses, but what does she wear underneath? Through the eyes of a little girl hoping for a school visit by the Queen, the range of royal underwear will be revealed, in all its regal glory!

“A musical of The Queen’s Knickers should be one of sheer fun. The book has been a big seller for more than 30 years: the combined subjects of royalty and underwear are both of great curiosity to young children.”
