Win tickets to 'Vita and Virginia'

Hitting cinemas on 5th July, Vita and Virginia tells the true story of the passionate affair between literary trailblazer Virginia Woolf (played by Elizabeth Debicki) and aristocratic socialite Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton). When the two first meet in 1922 Vita decides Virginia will be her next conquest, while Virginia is dazzled by the extrovert whose books at the time outsold her own. The film follows the pair through seduction, heartbreak and the inspiration Virginia takes from the relationship to outstrip Vita and achieve her literary peak.

We have a pair of tickets to give away to a special pre-release screening on 4th July, 6.15pm, at the Curzon Bloomsbury, followed by a Q&A session with director Chanya Button.

For a chance to win, email whowantstoknow@thecandlelightclub.com with your answer to this question: what is the name of Virginia Woolf's 1928 novel the main character of which, based on Vita, lives for centuries and changes sex?

The winner will be drawn from the correct answers on Monday 1st July.
