Have yourself a very merry Christmas
What better way to treat your loved ones this Christmas than with tickets to see The Great Gatsby or Ugly Duckling?
You could even get a little present for yourself. Give the gift of a year's Friends membership and enter a prize draw to win tickets for The Great Gatsby. Don't worry though, we'll keep it our little secret...
