The Birmingham Repertory Theatre is asking people in the West Midlands for their photographs of a favourite “Secret Garden”, ideally in the… “weirdest and wackiest places … the more unusual the better”. You could potentially win four free tickets for you and your friends or family, to see the Rep’s new Christmas stage production of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden (1910). Photos may also be shown on the Rep’s website. Deadline: 29th October 2010. Email your pictures, and some brief comments on your chosen site, to:  competitions@birmingham-rep.co.uk

Pictures: my photos of David Papadopoulos‘s reclaimed Utopia garden made at re:location in Smethwick.
