The pages of TVO sometimes move so fast, it’s easy to lose the good stuff.  Whilst we work on a way of fixing that, you’re just going to have to get used to scrolling through news stories – which may mean you missed our competition to win a pair of tickets to see the latest incarnation of legendary characters Jeeves & Wooster in the West End.

The Velvet Onion is proud to be able to once more offer one lucky winner a chance to see the renewed show – Jeeves & Wooster in ‘Perfect Nonsense’ – starring Mark Heap (Spaced, Big Train, The World’s End) as the dutiful valet, Jeeves, to Peep Show and Mitchell & Webb star Robert Webb as the effervescent, aristocratic fool Bertie Wooster.

It tells of a perfectly delightful trip to the countryside which takes a turn for the worse as Bertie Wooster is unwittingly called on to play matchmaker. He must reconcile the affections of his host’s drippy daughter Madeline Bassett with his newt-fancying acquaintance Gussie Fink-Nottle, and if Bertie, ably assisted by the ever-dependable Jeeves, can’t pull off the wedding of the season he’ll be forced to abandon his cherished bachelor status and marry the ghastly girl himself!

The show began life late last year with Stephen Mangan and Matthew McFayden in the title roles, and its runaway success has scored a West End extension. Housed at the prestigious Duke Of York’s Theatre, London, Mangan & McFayden remain in their roles until 5th April, with Webb & Heap set to take over two days later until at least September 20th 2014.

And this, dear readers, is where TVO comes in. Thanks to our friends at Duke Of York’s Theatre and AKA, The Velvet Onion is able to offer a pair of tickets to one lucky winner for a Webb & Heap performance of their choosing.

To be in which a chance of winning, simply tell us the answer to the following question:

What is the name of the TVO regular who appeared with Robert Webb in The Bleak Old Shop Of Stuff, and with Mark Heap in Big Train and Jam?

Email your replies to by 11:59pm on Sunday 16th March.

One winner will be picked at random, and contacted by AKA to arrange tickets for a performance of their choosing (subject to availability) any Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday between April 7th and May 28th 2014.  For more details, see the T&C below.  Good luck!
