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.
