iC supporters win tickets for Twopence To Cross The Mersey

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!: The cast of Twopence To Cross The Mersey celebrate the news that iC subscribers Ethel Corduff and Angus Hewlett will be in their audience next week

Congratulations to loyal readers Ethel Corduff and Angus Hewlett, who will be going to the theatre next week accompanied by a friend or partner, all thanks to Inside Croydon.

Ethel and Angus both answered the (very) simple question posed in our Twopence To Cross The Mersey quiz. They – along with dozens of others, it’s fair to say – both knew that Liverpool is the European city most closely associated with the River Mersey.

They each receive two pairs of stalls tickets – face value: nearly £70 each – to see the play at the Ashcroft Theatre during its brief run next week.

The production is part of the first national tour of Helen Forrester’s Twopence To Cross The Mersey, about her up-bringing and life on Merseyside during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Millions are familiar with Helen Forrester’s life story which is told through her best-selling volumes of autobiography. A Blue Plaque was unveiled in 2020 at the late author’s family home in Hoylake on the Wirral, a place which features heavily in her work.

“Helen has fans worldwide, and this way we can take Helen’s story a little closer to them,” said the play’s producer, Rob Fennah.

The competition is one of the frequent bonuses for subscribers to Inside Croydon, who pay a modest monthly amount – less than the price of a pint – that helps us to continue to deliver the distinctive local journalism that has been making national headlines since 2010.
