Free tickets for the world premiere of Stephen Merchant’s new BBC show available near Gloucestershire

Tickets are up for grabs for the world premiere of multi-award-winning writer and director Stephen Merchant’s new BBC comedy thriller, The Outlaws.

The world premiere of Stephen Merchant’s new BBC comedy thriller The Outlaws is coming to Bristol on Monday 4 October 2021 – and there are free tickets up for grabs.

Lucky applicants have the chance to win two free tickets and a spot in the audience to see the brand-new show for the first time.

After the first-look screening, Stephen Merchant will host a Q&A with the evening’s host, multi-award-winning Bristol comedian and television presenter Jayde Adams, giving guests the chance to join in the discussion and ask questions.

Organisers say the new six-part comedy thriller made in partnership between the BBC and Amazon Studios ‘follows seven strangers from different walks of life, forced together to complete a community sentence in Bristol.

‘As they become involved in each other’s lives, they also become involved with a dangerous criminal gang. At first, the offenders seem like archetypes each to pigeonhole, but gradually we see behind their facades, understand their hidden depths and what made them the people they are today.’

Alongside Stephen Merchant, the series stars actor and comedian, Christopher Walken, in his first lead British television role, as well as EastEnders star Clare Perkins, Killing Eve ’s Darren Boyd and Eleanor Tomlinson from Poldark.

The Outlaws will officially air this autumn 2021 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Members of the public can apply for tickets on the BBC Shows and Tours website until 10pm on Tuesday 28 September 2021.
