Win tickets to see the first Mr Benn showing at Norwich Theatre Royal

The Evening News has teamed up with Norwich Theatre Royal to give away five family tickets to see the first showing of Mr Benn.

For 40 years, Mr Benn has been one of Britain's most popular children's characters thanks to the much-loved television series and books. Now he is taking to the stage to mark the anniversary in a brand new adventure which comes to Norwich Theatre Royal on May 30-31.

And the Evening News has teamed up with Norwich Theatre Royal to give our readers a chance to win five family tickets (two adults and two children) to see the first show.

It follows the story of Mr Benn who is an ordinary man living in an ordinary street who makes the same ordinary journey every day to his ordinary office until he gets an invitation to a fancy dress shop, which is overflowing with costumes. The shopkeeper then arrives and shows Mr Benn into a changing room which contains a special door leading to lots of adventures that could mean he is never ordinary again.

The production is packed with magic and music and is aimed at all the family. Based on the original character created by David McKee, it is being brought to the stage by Tall Stories - the creators of The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom.
