How to Hold Your Breath is a thrilling new play at the Royal Court Theatre starring Maxine Peake. The play tells a dark and witty story of a seemingly innocent one night stand.

Not only will you receive two top price tickets to the play by Zinnie Harris, you will be treated to a pre-show dinner in the theatre’s Bar & Kitchen restaurant and one night’s stay in the wonderful Belgraves Hotel. The Royal Court is just a short stroll from Belgraves Hotel. At the hotel the winner will enjoy traditional British hospitality with an American bohemian attitude.

Enter for your chance to win this luxury London break that includes top price theatre tickets, a meal before and a night’s stay.
