Win family tickets to George’s Marvellous Medicine at Oxford Playhouse

By John Charlton

We are giving away family tickets for the fantastical stage adaptation of Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine at the Oxford Playhouse.

George’s grandmother is different. Most grandmothers are lovely, kind, helpful old ladies. Not George’s. George’s Grandmother likes to gobble up slugs and bugs, and is always telling George what to do. But one day, when his parents leave him alone with the grizzly old grunion, George takes his chance and sets about creating a brand new medicine to cure her of her cruelty. Little does he know that his perilous potion will be the start of a rather marvellous adventure.

To win a set of Family tickets (4 x tickets up to 2 x adults + ice creams) simply answer the following question:

What does George’s Gran like to gobble up?
A) Potatoes and carrots
B) Slugs and bugs
C) Ice cream
