The film follows a group of female factory workers, featuring a stellar British cast including Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson, Geraldine James, Rosamund Pike, Andrea Riseborough, Jaime Winstone and Daniel Mays. It's 1968, the year of revolution and students are demonstrating the world over. Meanwhile in Dagenham in Essex as far from the swinging sixties as possible, the Ford motor company is about to face its biggest ever threat, and from the unlikeliest of places: the female sewing machinists.

The women down tools in 1968 when they are reclassified as "unskilled". With humour, common sense and courage they take on their U.S. paymasters, an increasingly belligerent local community, and finally the government itself, to strike an everlasting blow for equal pay for women.

The catalyst for the women's struggle is fast-talking, no nonsense Rita played by Sally Hawkins, whose fiery temper and occasionally hilarious unpredictability proves to be a match for any of her male opponents.

For your chance to win the tickets to this fantastic event, simply answer the following question:

In 2008 Sally Hawkins had the lead role in which film by Mike Leigh?

a) Vera Drake

b) Secrets & Lies

c) Happy Go Lucky

Good luck!
