Win a family ticket to The Velveteen Rabbit at the Unicorn Theatre!

28 Mar – 12 Apr

There was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; and for at least two hours the Boy loved him. He spends his days waiting patiently on the nursery floor, watching the Boy play with the other toys and dreaming of being picked up and loved. And then, one day, he is rediscovered and all his hopes start to come true…

This Easter join the cast for the return of hit show The Velveteen Rabbit, a heart-warming story about a very shy toy Rabbit who longs for nothing more than to become real. This classic American tale loses nothing of its power, magic and charm in this bold and adventure-filled adaptation for the Unicorn stage.

‘utterly gripping and heart-wrenching’
★★★★Guardian

Prize validity – 4 tickets, valid for all performances between 28 Mar and 12 Apr. Subject to availability.

All you need to do it send us a photo of you and your family enjoying a trip to the farm! You can do this via Facebook or Twitter.
