One million pages and our loyal reader is our latest winner

Croydon's newest theatre: the Spread Eagle Pub Theatre opens tonight

Croydon’s newest theatre: the Spread Eagle Pub Theatre

Inside Croydon’s loyal reader, Ken Towl, is the winner of the site’s latest free-to-enter competition.

Towl got the correct answer to our question (Katharine Hepburn was the subject of the first play at the new venue on Katharine Street), and our Polish cleaning lady pulled his name from a hat stuffed full with hundreds of other correct entries.

Towl wins a pair of tickets to the opening night performance of The Twelve Dates of Christmas at the Spread Eagle pub theatre this Tuesday.

Thanks to the help of producers at the Fairfield Halls and Spread Eagle, in the past fortnight Inside Croydon has given its readers hundreds of pounds-worth of free theatre tickets – and all around the time that the site received our one millionth visitor. See our preview of The Twelve Dates of Christmas here.

Performances are from Tuesday November 26 to Friday November 29, at 7.30pm at the pub theatre on Katharine Street, Croydon, CR1 0NX.

Tickets are still available for the latest production at the Spread Eagle. Click here for the bookings site
