Win tickets to Wasted

Three old friends. One day trip through South London, where life is what you make it. The rapid fire words of hip-hop artist and performance poet Kate Tempest paint a picture of lives less ordinary, set to  an exhilarating score.

"An ingenious whole that's funny and true...full of vividly phrased observation...spot-on." **** The Guardian
