Great Stomp giveaway

The unique urban sounds of the multi-Emmy nominated Stomp Out Loud have now been released on video by VCI. A hugely successful UK arts export, Stomp has played to a total of six million people in 23 countries. It's now enjoying its fifth year of a continuous off-Broadway run.

Stomp takes every day noises and turns them into an enthralling and energetic music and dance extravaganza. Dustbin lids, brooms, basketballs, kitchen knives, playing cards, drainpipes, buckets - the list is endless - the results incredible.

The video Stomp Out Loud combines the best of the stage show plus new and re-choreographed pieces. It also includes the Academy Award-nominated cinema short, "Brooms". This dance extravaganza is now released on video for the first time. The troupe are also going on tour, starting with a six-week run at London's Roundhouse.

We have 20 videos and 20 pairs of Stomp drumsticks on offer. For a chance to win, send your name and address on a postcard to: Independent/Stomp Out Loud Comp, PO Box 951, Gerards Cross, Bucks SL9 9UN by 8 January 1999.
