Filth: exclusive preview screening

100 tickets to give away

This competition is now closed

Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy) wants a promotion. He is clearly the best man for the job - the rest of his colleagues are just idiots. Annoyingly, there’s been a murder and Bruce’s boss wants results. No problem for Bruce. He’s in control and when he solves the case and wins the promotion, his wife will return to him. No problem. But is life that simple? Is Bruce the man he really thinks he is? The tragic, hilarious and memorable answers unfold in Filth...

This adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel, also starring Jamie Bell, Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan and Imogen Poots, hits cinemas across Scotland on 27 September and the rest of the UK on 4 October.

We have teamed up with Lionsgate to give away 50 pairs of tickets for an exclusive preview screening at The May Fair Hotel on Tuesday 1 October 2013 at 6pm (for a 6.30pm start).

The May Fair Hotel

A legendary hotel with an iconic past, The May Fair was opened by King George V in 1927 and since became an A-list playground for the Hollywood set. A £75 million transformation later and the May Fair is once more one of London’s most talked-about hotels.

More than a hotel, The May Fair is a collection of experiences, from Quince, a destination restaurant that forsakes the formality of five-star dining, to the Cigar Room, an intimate enclave that recreates the outdoors in. The May Fair Bar includes a magnum fridge bristling with rare pleasures, and the discreet May Fair Spa is an urban retreat with a modern, results-focused approach to wellbeing. Each one unique, The May Fair’s stunning signature suites are recognized as among the most beautiful rooms in London. Business travellers benefit from a 24/7 business centre and dedicated meetings area with abundant natural light, and high speed Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the hotel.

The May Fair is unique in its ability to facilitate new experiences. It’s a place to meet and explore new possibilities; from the intimate to the extravagant; from the physical to the aesthetic. It’s the beginning of another small adventure you’ll just have to tell someone about.
