Prepare yourselves for a night filled with passion, drama, music and horror as BBC Three's live event, Frankenstein's Wedding... Live in Leeds comes to the city on Saturday 19th March. The classic novel by Mary Shelley will be spectacularly brought to life in the gothic setting of Kirkstall Abbey in front of a live audience of 12,000 people. And of course, you can watch it all live on BBC Three too.

Frankenstein's Wedding... Live in Leeds: Andrew Gower as Victor, David Harewood as the Creature, Lacey Turner as Elizabeth.

Lacey Turner, star of Being Human and EastEnders takes up the role of Elizabeth Lavenza, the bride-to-be preparing to marry Victor Frankenstein, played by Andrew Gower. But things don't go to plan as the lavish wedding is overshadowed by Frankenstein's dark secret, the murderous Creature he has created, played by David Harewood.

Sounds great, right? And YOU could be there. We have 9,000 FREE tickets to give away so make sure you check the Frankenstein's Wedding website from Friday 18th February to apply. The best bit is that we want guests to play an active role in the wedding: we want you to wear your finest wedding outfits and take part in the celebratory dancing.
