You could be going to the Cornish premiere! Here’s how to apply for free tickets…

The BBC is offering Poldark fans the chance to go to the Cornish premiere of the drama’s final series.

Over 300 tickets to the star-studded event, which is being held at the Regal Theatre in Redruth on Thursday, 20th June, are up for grabs through the BBC’s Shows and Tours website.

The BBC says the free Poldark tickets “are likely to be oversubscribed so will be allocated through a random draw”. You can apply for a maximum of two tickets.

Eleanor Tomlinson says: “Cornwall is the heart of Poldark and I’m delighted to be returning to give our series the send-off it deserves, surrounded by the Cornish fans, without whom the series would not have been the success it is. Thank you for your constant support. I look forward to seeing you on the twentieth of June!”

Luke Norris added: “I can't wait to get back to Cornwall and share a sneak-preview of Poldark series five with some of the fans who have kept us going these past five years. It's been a magical time for all of us, thanks largely to the county and its people, and I will always be grateful for their support.”

The show’s writer, Debbie Horsfield is also attending the screening, which is expected to draw big crowds. Last year a whopping 700 people turned up to see the stars arrive on the red carpet.

Further details can be found on the BBC’s Shows and Tours website.

The BBC is yet to reveal exactly when Poldark, starring Aidan Turner, will return for its final series, although it will be this summer.
