Your Chance To Ask Noel

It’s been a bit quiet on the Noel Fielding front of late. If you’re anything like us, you’ll be missing Noel’s occasional twitter-based intrusions into your life. So wouldn’t it be nice to have the opportunity to find out what he’s been getting up to of late? To ask him what he’s being busy doing? Well now you can!

To mark the occasion of his impending landmark birthday Noel has very kindly agreed to talk exclusively to The Velvet Onion. Given how low-key he’s been lately (give or take the occasional Albert Hall gig), this is a rare treat. What’s more, he’s inviting you to decide what we ask! It’ll be a rare opportunity for  fans to find out what really makes him tick.

Please send us your questions for Noel and he’ll answer a selection of the best ones (we’ll credit you if your question gets picked, of course). The more insightful and interesting your question is, the more likely it is to be included. That means marriage proposals and endless questions about his trousers, haircut etc are unlikely to make the grade. Sorry.

Please write your questions in the comments box beneath this post; only those received before midnight (GMT) on Saturday 27th April will be considered and a maximum of 3 questions per person can be entered.

So get your question-posing creative juices flowing and let us know what it is that you’d like to know. If you’re lucky, Noel will be answering your question next week…

Many thanks for your entries – the response has been incredible. You’re an insightful and imaginative bunch! All questions received before the deadline of midnight 27th April will now be reviewed and a selection of the best ones put to Noel. Entries are now closed.

Sorry, but we’re not able to confirm which questions will be included until the interview is edited; unfortunately not all of those asked will make the final cut. We’re aiming to have the interview ready to coincide with Noel’s birthday, but we’ll keep you posted. 

Please note that questions which have been asked by multiple people may not be credited to a specific individual. 

Please see below for some useful blurb on the terms and conditions of this offer. It’ll hopefully answer any questions that you might have:
