Win tickets to Michelle Obama's event at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall on Monday 3rd December, where she’ll be in conversation with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about her memoir Becoming, sold out within an hour when they went on sale. We were able to get our hands on one pair of tickets, so we’re offering you the chance to be at this very special evening with a friend. To enter the competition, simply fill in the form below.

Reflecting on her memoir, Michelle Obama will invite audiences into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she will recount her triumphs and her disappointments – both public and private – and in candidly recounting moments from her own extraordinary journey, she will also share life lessons learned, and inspire people to become the very best version of themselves.
