Enter our competition to WIN tickets for three fab events at the Chorlton Arts Festival.

Back for its fifteenth year is the Chorlton Arts Festival, a May-time mashup of music, art, theatre, comedy and performance. Included in the ten day run (15-24 May) are an exhibition of cartoons by Tony Husband from Private Eye, live performances from The Travelling Band and Young Knives, Twisted Fairytales from feminist collective Stirred Poetry, a vegan fair and a Tea Club that looks to be more performance than, er, tea. Perhaps the most exciting of the live lit events is Re/Place (20 May), where six acclaimed writers perform specially-created work that responds to the buildings and spaces around Chorlton. Rounding it all out is the Chorlton Arts Festival Weekender. So where does this giveaway come in?
