This competition is now closed.

In 1972, Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace (Amanda Seyfried).

Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard). She became an international sensation and enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world — and herself as the survivor of a far darker story.

Lovelace features an all-star supporting cast including James Franco, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple and Eric Roberts, and hits cinemas across the UK on 23 August.

We have teamed up with Lionsgate to give away 50 pairs of tickets for an exclusive preview screening at The May Fair Hotel on Thursday 22 August 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.
