Posted: 1st September 2010

Competition Closed

This competition is now closed - winners' details will be published shortly. Watch this space for more mailing list competitions - if you're signed-up, you're instantly entered into the prize-draws!

We are proud to launch our two new weekly newsletters and "Event Alerts" service, which will help you keep abreast of the latest gigs, shows, comedy and arts events coming-up and going on sale, as well as keeping you up-to-date with the latest news.

In celebration, we have a few stunning prizes, the first prize being a pair of tickets to see Gorillaz at the O2 Arena in November (14th or 16th - you choose) - courtesy of, along with their killer 2010 album 'Plastic Beach' - which has been on rotation at allgigs towers since its release.

The second and third placed winners will also each get a copy of 'Plastic Beach', as well as the critically acclaimed debut album 'Man Alive' by Everything Everything and the debut album 'Happiness' from Manchester-based synth-pop band Hurts.

Gorillaz launched their 2010 album 'Plastic Beach' at a pair of sold-out gigs in London's Roundhouse in April, accompanied by Gruff Rhys, Mos Def and Bobby Womack - who appear on the album. The band absolutely tore-it-up as headliners of this year's Glastonbury, playing Plastic Beach in its entirety with special guests Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, De La Soul, Bobby Womack, Snoop Dogg and even Lou Reed popping along.

The Newsletters

The two newsletters: Gigs, Tours and Festivals and Theatre, Arts and Comedy will keep you informed of the latest gig, tour and festival news - with a bit of clubbing thrown in for good measure (in the case of the first newsletter) and shows, dance, opera and comedy for the second newsletter. The "Event Alerts" should be seen as supplemental to the pair, and will announce any last minute events or special offers.

How to enter

The rules of entry are simple: if you subscribe to either of our "Gigs, Tours and Festivals", "Theatre, Arts and Comedy" newsletters or our "Event Alerts" - or any permutation/ combination up to and including Sunday 12th September, then you are in the competition, as well as being in the know!

Just click on the Sign Me Up! link towards the top-right of this page (under the heading: Subscribe to our Newsletter), then fill in the form and click on the link in the confirmation email which will be sent to you. Simple, we think.

Stay on the list, win prizes!

As a further bonus, just by being subscribed to any of these services, we will reward a random selection with occasional prizes, because that's how we roll.
