Win tickets to see Betty Blue Eyes

Warm, witty, rude, loveable, dramatic, hilarious
The Times

Cameron Mackintosh’s new hit British musical Betty Blue Eyes has recently opened to rave reviews in London’s West End.

Here’s the plot: it’s 1947 and excitement is growing as the good folk of Shepardsford, Yorkshire prepare to celebrate the forthcoming Royal Wedding of Princess Elizabeth to Philip Mountbatten.

Determined to defy strict rationing measures and mark the special occasion accordingly, members of the Town Council are fattening up a highly illegal pig called Betty for a lavish banquet in honour of the royal couple. Rejected by the town for being nobodies, Gilbert and his social climbing wife Joyce resolve to steal the pig – but will it save Betty’s bacon?

Sarah Lancashire and Reece Shearsmith lead a marvellous cast including, Ann Emery, Jack Edwards, Mark Meadows, Olivier Award winners Adrian Scarborough and David Bamber and, of course, Betty as herself.
