This competition's now closed!

To celebrate the release of Made In Dagenham in cinemas from October 28th, we've got 5 prize packs to giveaway.

Made in Dagenham
 is directed by Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls) and stars an ensemble cast that includes: Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson, Geraldine James, Rosamund Pike and Daniel Mays.  

From the Director of Calendar Girls comes the inspirational, entertaining and often hilarious Made in Dagenham.

Inspired by the true story of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant in London, the film focuses on Rita O'Grady and her group of friends. What starts as a dispute over pay escalates to an uprising of Ford's entire female workforce.

This event went down in history as the event that led to the advent of the Equal Pay Act. The film stars Golden Globe Winner Sally Hawkins as fast-talking, no nonsense Rita. Rita is a normal 60s girl.

A young mother, all she wants is a good life for herself and her family.

Though it's not the perfect job, sewing car seat covers at Ford Dagenham Plant - it's all she's got.

Despite the poor conditions in the factory Rita and her friends and co-workers Sandra, Eileen, Brenda, Monica and Connie laugh and joke while they work, reflecting the upbeat era of the 1960s.

That is until Rita and her co-workers are re-graded unskilled, and the women finally take industrial action. Rita empowers the women around her to demand what they deserve.

To Ford, these courageous women mean nothing. But they hadn't counted on Rita. She's a leader, she's a winner and she'll change history!
