Competition: Win tickets to see Eliza Carthy, Martin Carthy and Martin Simpson at the Barbican with Topic Records

We are delighted to be able to offer five pairs of tickets to two special 'An audience with...' events, celebrating the history of Topic Records.

From November 2016 to February 2017, the remarkable 77-year history of veteran independent record label Topic Records is being explored in an exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London. Featuring a wealth of archive treasures, the exhibition looks back at the label's origins in the Workers' Music Association, the key part it played in the mid-20th century folk revival, right up to the present day.

Complementing the exhibition are two 'An Audience with...' events at the Barbican Music Library on 16 and 30 January, 7 - 9pm. The first is with EFDSS' Vice President Eliza Carthy, while the second features iconic folk guitarists Martin Carthy and Martin Simpson.

If you would like to win a pair of tickets to either of these events, simply answer the question below and fill in your contact details. The competition closes on Friday 6 January 2017.
