To celebrate the opening of The Comedy of Errors we're working with Darwin Escapes to offer one person the chance to escape over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

'Anon, I wot not by what strong escape,
He broke from those that had the guard of him'

Enter to be in with a chance to win four tickets to see the show and to enjoy a break at one of the Darwin Escapes’ lodges at their brand-new Stratford-upon-Avon Lodge Retreat. 

The Comedy of Errors opened this week in our Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Garden Theatre, with tales of a separation and reunion amid a case of mistaken identity. Our competition offers the winner the chance to reunite with friends and family through an escape to the theatre while staying at one of Darwin Escapes' luxury resorts. 

The winner will stay in the Oxhill Lodge Premier in Stratford-upon-Avon, arriving Friday 27 August and checking out on Monday 30 August 2021. You will enjoy a private hot tub and private decking and an open plan living area that offers everything you need for a self-catered break. With one double room, a twin room, family bathroom and ensuite, there's enough space for everyone to enjoy their break away to the Warwickshire countryside. We are offering you four tickets to see The Comedy of Errors on a night of your choosing across this weekend.
