Comic Relief: Prizeathon (2019)

February 20, 2019: 

In the lead up to Red Nose Day 2019, Comic Relief has opened their annual Prize-A-Thon raffle. Red Nose Day is March 15 in the UK and May 23 in the US. Through their Red Nose Day activities and fundraisers, Comic Relief has raised more than £1,000,000,000 to help in poverty around the world. 

One of the Prize-A-Thon prizes, is a chance to meet Tom Hiddleston and watch his play Betrayal in London on May 27, 2019. 

Your chance to hang out with Tom Hiddleston in the flesh *faints* - and tickets to watch his incredible performance in the sold out West End hit play, Betrayal.
Tom Hiddleston would like to invite you to the sold-out production of Betrayal by Harold Pinter on the 27 May. You’ll be met at the theatre, treated like a star, and taken to the exclusive Ambassador Lounge for pre-show drinks. You’ll then be given two precious house seats to watch one of the most anticipated shows of the year. When the show is over, you'll join the star of the show, Golden Globe and Olivier Award winner, Tom Hiddleston for drinks and snacks in the bar. The hottest ticket in town – followed by some private time with the star of the show. You will be hard pushed to find a more sensational night out in London’s glittering West End.

Each entry is £10. Or you can also enter for free by writing in (details in the link). The last day to enter is March 31, 2019 and the winner will be notified on April 15, 2019. *Travel and hotel accommodations are not included so if you are outside of London you will have to arrange that on your own. 

If you don't like your odds in the raffle (and you have a few extra thousand of £££££££s laying around), you can also bid outright for this opportunity in the Red Nose Day Auction (this went for £18,000!!!!). 

On February 27, Tom Hiddleston recorded a video tease for the competition. Please be nice. 

For those wondering: No, this video was *not* filmed inside of Tom's house. This was recorded at Richard Curtis and Emma Freud's house where they had a Red Nose Day Dinner on February 26th. Richard Curtis co-founded Comic Relief in 1985 and Emma serves as Director of Red Nose Day. Emma shared the video this morning. Tom also posed with his friend John Macmillan and actor Tom Moutchi.  


On April 12, 2019 Comic Relief released a video from one of the lucky Betrayal prize winners. 


On April 15, 2019 Omaze got in on the action and is also offering the same Betrayal Prize - this time to benefit Red Nose Day US. This is Tom Hiddleston's first collaboration with Omaze. Unlike the prize-a-thon, the Omaze package also included travel and hotel accommodations. But regardless of whether you enter via Omaze, the Prize-A-Thon, or the Auction - all the winners will meet Tom after the May 27th show.
