Glasgow Film Theatre“

In The City, the music industry’s annual chinwag and liver-bashing session, is coming to Glasgow, Sat 27 Sep—Wed 1 Oct. The GFT are running a season of films coinciding with the event and are showing a number of films which have been picked by local bands such as Arab Strap and The Delgadoes. The bands will introduce their favourite movies and play a short set before or after their chosen film.

We've got four lots of Black Grape's first album It’s Great When You’re Straight, Black Grape posters and four pairs of tickets to see the video which is screened on Sat 27 Sep at 10.45pm. To get the goodies, answer this:
