Win with Hampstead Theatre & the National Portrait Gallery

This competition is now CLOSED and a winner has been chosen.

Hampstead Theatre has teamed up with the National Portrait Gallery to celebrate the opening of two new shows on 18 October.

The National Portrait Gallery’s The Lost Prince: The Life and Death of Henry Stuart is the first exhibition to look at the life of the young Prince of Wales (1594 – 1612), focusing on a remarkable period in British history, dominated by a prince whose death at a young age precipitated widespread national grief. This led eventually to the accession to the throne of his younger brother, the doomed Charles I.

Hampstead Theatre also opens its doors for the highly anticipated historical thriller, 55 Days. In December 1648, the army has occupied London. Parliament votes not to put the imprisoned King Charles I on trial, so the army moves against Westminster and the only military coup in English history takes place. But the army leadership remains divided: Cromwell would prefer a compromise with the King, but the King will not compromise. A new nation must therefore be forged…and over 55 days, an entirely new world is created.

For your chance to win 2 tickets to The Lost Prince and 55 Days please answer the following question:

What was the age gap between brothers, Henry Stuart and Charles I?

a.) 5 years
b.) 7 years
c.) 6 years

The competition closes on 12 October. Entries must be submitted to

Good Luck!
