This competition has now ended. 


We have two pairs of tickets to give away to the John McCarthy talk about the Cairo to Constantinople photography exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery on 5 February.  There are also two pairs of general admission tickets to the exhibition for the runners up.

Following in the footsteps of the Prince of Wales, writer and journalist John McCarthy recreated the 1862 royal tour to see how the sites have changed in the 150 years since. Joining him will be Dr Sophie Gordon, Senior Curator of Photographs at the Royal Collection Trust and the exhibition curator, to discuss how the images captured the public’s imagination at the time and why the iconic architectural sites of the region continue to have such an impact today.

The gallery opens at 6.30pm on 5 February with the talk beginning at 7pm. The exhibition runs until 22 February. For more information on the exhibition please visit the website >
