WIN / Tix to see Sounds of the City at Manchester Castlefield Bowl starring Guy Garvey

By on Tuesday, 31st May 2016 at 11:00 am

The weather has turned warmer, the sun has made more than a few brief appearances, and hooray, it’s summer! For yet another year, Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl will play host to a series of fantastic gigs at the start of July as part of the ongoing Sounds of the City series (formerly known as Summer in the City). Ushering in the five-pack of shows at the outdoor music and entertainment venue – which includes appearances by mega stars James Bay and Catfish and the Bottlemen on the 6th and 8th of July, respectively – is a hometown hero who really needs no introduction, Guy Garvey.

Last year, Garvey embarked on a solo career away from his usual buddies in Elbow, releasing debut album ‘Courting the Squall’ last autumn. On Friday the 1st of July, the Garvinator will be ringing in this year’s Sounds of the City, headlining the first night of the concert series. Joining him on stage will be fellow Mancunian Badly Drawn Boy and ex-Beta Band founder Steve Mason, who himself released a new album, ‘Meet the Humans’, in February. We’ve got incredible news: we’ve blagged two pairs of tickets to the big show on 1 July, and we want to give them to two lucky TGTF readers!

How does one go about winning a pair of these golden tickets? Well, my dear reader, you’ll need to fill out our form below and send it along tout suite. Give us your full name, your email address (so we know you’re a living, breathing human being), and your postal address (so we can post you the tickets if you’ve won). The clincher? You’ll need to tell us what brass instrument Guy Garvey play live in the Elbow song ‘Starlings’. If you’ve seen Elbow live before, this should be a piece of cake. If it’s not, have a search through Wikipedia and you shall find it.

That’s it! We’ll keep this contest open until 12 noon BST this Friday, the 3rd of June. The two lucky winners will be contacted by email. To make this fair, all duplicate entries will be discarded. Please note: this contest is open to UK residents only and you must be able to get yourself and your guest to the Castlefield Bowl in Manchester. Please also note that all under 14s must be accompanied by an adult (these are the venue’s rules, not ours, and TGTF won’t be held responsible if you’re turned away at the door for being underage and not meeting the venue’s age requirement). Good luck!

If you’d rather not chance it and would like to buy tickets to this Guy Garvey show in advance, visit this Gigs and Tours page. Many thanks to our friends there for ‘lending’ these tickets to us for this great giveaway.

This contest is now closed. Winners will be contacted by email shortly.
