The Chiswick Calendar freebie – Tickets to Hansel & Gretel

The Chiswick Calendar is offering free tickets to Hansel and Gretel at the Chiswick Playhouse, for ten lucky winners who are able to go to the show this week.

The traditional tale, suitable for children aged six and upwards, will take children on an adventure in a forest of silver trees:

‘far from their city life, their Xboxes and Insta likes, into a world of lollipop houses, tap-dancing cockroaches and a witch with a penchant for single use plastic and the only remaining sustainable food source: children’.

The cast is full of veterans of West End productions, including: Pippa Conway, Joshua Oakes-Rogers, Serena Flynn and Tomi Ogbaro, so it promises to be a good one.

To win one of ten pairs of tickets for performances this week – Wednesday 11 December at 7.00pm, Thursday at 3.00pm / 7.00pm, Friday at 3.00pm / 7.00pm, Saturday at 3.00pm / 7.00pm or Sunday at 11.00am / 3.00pm – all you have to do is answer this question:


In the original (1812) edition of the story as published by the Grimm brothers Jacob and Wilhelm, what meal did the witch give the children when she enticed them into her house?

First correct answers to email: win the tickets. Please put Hansel & Gretel tickets in the title of your email.
