Get your hands on tickets to Steve Lamacq's Christmas Party at BBC Radio 6 Music

Billy Bragg, The Big Moon and some top DJs will all be in attendance

Get yourself tickets to the ultimate Office Christmas Party as Steve Lamacq throws open the 6 Music doors to a handful of lucky listeners on December 13th. From 4 to 7pm we will be joined by Billy Bragg, The Big Moon and some top DJs - there'll even be a Secret Santa - spoiler, it’s Shaun Keaveny in a beard.

We have six pairs of tickets to give away. All you have to do is email us the best explanation of why you deserve to shake your money makers in the same room as Steve Lamacq to - don't forget to stick Christmas Party in the subject header.

So if you are a stay at home parent, out of employment, a lone worker or just have a boss who doesn’t put on a shindig then we want you to join our gang. And if have an office party you want to get out of, then we have your back too, as we'll be giving away one special group ticket (up to 6 people) to an office too.

Of course like any office party, you have to be able to get yourself there and home, and you aren’t allowed anywhere near the photocopier...

Please note, the closing date for submitting nominations is 19:00 on Monday 9th December 2019.

If you are selected to join us we will be in touch on Tuesday 10th or Wednesday 11th December.
