[Update March 24: All tickets are now claimed! Congratulations to everyone who received tickets. Enjoy the screening.]
Calling all Buffy fans. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and to celebrate, Fandom has teamed up with Syfy UK to hold special sing-along screenings of episodes from the iconic show at venues in London, Manchester and Glasgow. And we have a bunch of tickets to give away.
We have 25 pairs up for grabs for the London fan event, and 10 pairs each for the Manchester and Glasgow screenings.
On the night, you’ll see two Buffy episodes. The first will be a sing-along screening of ‘Once More, with Feeling’, the Season 6 episode which was performed as a musical. The second will be the final episode, ‘Chosen’.
To get your hands on a pair of tickets, all you need to do is fill in the online form below with your details, stating which screening you’d like tickets for. Tickets will be allocated at random to lucky prize-draw entrants after the closing date.
Here are those screening details in full:
