Baz Lurhmann seems to cast spectacular magic when it comes to making blockbuster films – with hits like Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet under his belt, he’s now turned his attention to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel The Great Gatsby, which is fast becoming the most-anticipated movie of the year.

An all-star cast will bring the life and times of flamboyant millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his neighbour Nick (Tobey Maguire) as they throw parties for the New York elite during the Roaring Twenties. Needless to say, scandal is sure to follow.

And with hip hop megastar Jay-Z doing the music, expect huge queues for tickets.

The flamboyance and excitement of the 1920s provides the perfect backdrop for Lurhmann to work his magic, and has captured the imagination of fashionistas, artists, musicians and tastemakers across the country.

From flapper dresses to gin cocktails, the 1920s is having a revival – which is why we’ve teamed up with Ladbrokes Casino for a competition which brings the Roaring Twenties to you.

The prize, worth over £100 includes a cocktail shaker, cocktail recipe book, poker chips and a vintage card set, as well as some fancy dress pieces so you can recreate the glitz and glamour of a 1920s Prohibition-era casino right in your front room.

To enter the competition, just leave your answer to the following question and your email address in the comment box below.
