Meet one of the legendary names of British music in a special Event competition.

Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry opens the Summer Nights Open Air Concert Series at Blickling Hall next Friday (July 13) and you can meet the pop legend in person, have a pair of tickets to the concert - and a signed copy of his new album.

With Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry first hit the UK charts in 1972 with the single Virginia Plain. The band would go on to to enjoy more than 12 years of chart success with singles such as Pyjamarama, Street Life, Love is the Drug, All I Want Is You, Avalon, Dance Away and Same Old Scene and albums such as For Your Pleasure, Stranded, Country Life and Flesh and Blood.

Within a year of Roxy's self-titled debut, Ferry had released his first solo album, 1973's These Foolish Things, an album of covers including Bob Dylan's A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall. Solo releases like Another Time, Another Place (1974), Let's Stick Together (1976), The Bride Stripped Bare (1978) and Boys snd Girls (1985) would give Ferry more chart success.

Bryan Ferry's latest album Dylanesque was released in March, and is an entire album of Bob Dylan songs. The release features tracks such as Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, Simple Twist of Fate and The Times They Are A Changin'.

Special guest for the show will be Lucie Silvas.
