Starting later this month the Book Club in Shoreditch will be hosting a series of Mighty Boosh themed events and an exhibition of  Dave Brown’s photography and Boosh-related artworks. The exhibition focuses on the Boosh live in its various forms, something very dear to our hearts at TVO, having met  on those very tours.

To make sure that the Boosh’s biggest fans have the opportunity to be involved, The Book Club and Dave have very kindly put together a special prize for our readers – and here’s what it includes:

  • 4x first prizes, each of which consists of admission for two people to the Mighty Boosh exhibition launch party preview and the launch party. The preview is a special shindig for people connected with the exhibition and invited press, and isn’t open to the general public.
  • 10x runner up prizes, each of which consists of guaranteed admission for two people to the Mighty Boosh exhibition launch party. Although the launch party will be open to the general public, space will be limited and entry will be first come first served. These tickets will guarantee you entry, which means no queueing to get in.

To be in with a chance of winning, you’ll need to answer the following question:

The Mighty Boosh toured the UK and Ireland from September 2008 to February 2009. What was the name of the tour?

Email your answer, along with your full name, to by 11:59pm on Saturday 15th October.


We’ll pick four first prize winners and ten runner up prize winners at random from all the entries, and will be in touch with them via email on Sunday 16th October to ensure they are able to attend the launch events.

A couple of points to note about the prizes: We have been asked to let you know that the four first prize winners and their guests should wear Boosh costumes of some description. The event is a celebration of the show, and the extent to which fans have embraced dressing up is a big part of that. So dig out those polystyrene polo eyes and zoo keeper jackets, stick some satsumas down your pants and get ready to party! For the full terms and conditions, please see the small print below – it should answer any questions you might have about the competition.

The Mighty Boosh exhibition and events will be taking place at The Book Club in Shoreditch from 20th October 2016 until 29th January 2017; for more information head on over here. And to read about the photography and artworks on display, check out our recent interview with Dave Brown.
