Bananarama are the ultimate female 80s group and now we have the chance for you to win one of three pairs of tickets to their concert at Edinburgh Castle on 20 July 2018. This will be their first ever outdoor gig.

Sara, Keren and Siobhan of Bananarama will play at Edinburgh Castle on 20 July 2018

Earlier this year, the girl group that defined the decade announced they were back to their original, record-breaking line up for a tour of the UK. The news of Sara, Keren and Siobhan’s reunion has been met with universal approval from the media and public.

The original tour dates sold out instantly and further dates were added to extend the winter tour, so this is a really great chance of winning tickets that everybody in town wants!

Bananarama are the most successful female group of all time according to The Guinness Book of Records. Remember Robert de Niro’s Waiting, Cruel Summer, Venus, Shy Boy and Love in the First Degree? Get out your eighties gear and head on up to Edinburgh Castle for one of the best of this summer’s concerts there. 

To win one pair of tickets for the Bananarama concert on 20 July 2018 at Edinburgh Castle please answer the question below by 12 noon on 13 July 2018.
