Win a family ticket to see I Was a Rat!

To celebrate the UK premiere of Philip Pullman’s I Was a Rat!, which comes to Nottingham Playhouse on March 26, we are holding a new pet photo competition giving you a chance to win tickets to see the play. I Was a Rat! is the story of a young boy who shows up out of the blue at the home of a kindly cobbler and his wife, insisting he was a rat. This glorious and gripping tale combines humour, fantasy and adventure to gradually reveal its connection to one of the most famous fairy-tales of all time.

To be in with a chance of winning a family ticket to see the play just send us a photo of your small pet along with its name and a few facts about him or her. Whether it’s a gerbil, hamster, mouse, rabbit, chinchilla or perhaps a pet rat – we’d love to see! Email your photos to and we’ll share some of the best on our Facebook page and pick our favourite on Friday 22 March.
