A hilarious award-winning musical comedy will be staged for two weeks in the West Country this summer.
The Mercury is offering readers the chance to win tickets to see Calendar Girls - The Musical at the Bristol Hippodrome next month.
Gary Barlow and Tim Firth's Calendar Girls is inspired by the true story of a group of ladies who decide to appear nude for a WI calendar in a bid to raise cash to buy a settee for their local hospital, in memory of one of their husbands.
The musical comedy shows life in a Yorkshire village, how it happened, the effect on husbands, sons and daughters and how a group of ordinary ladies achieved something extraordinary.
The WI the story is based on has, to date, raised £5million for Bloodwise - a specialist UK blood cancer charity.
Lesley Joseph will join the cast at the Bristol Hippodrome as Jessie.
While she is best known for playing Dorien Green in the ITV sitcom Birds Of A Feather, Lesley has also appeared in Young Frankenstein, Annie and Night And Day.
