The quiz has now closed – see below for the answers and the winner.

Saturday 14 July 2018 sees the return of the Garstonbury music festival in East Garston (where else? See flyer below). It’s probably the biggest festival in our local area and it only happens every other year.

You needed to send your quiz answers to by 5pm on Monday 25 June. In the event of a tie, one winning entry will be chosen at random. Several people did this and eight scored 100%, so a round of applause for you all. One winner was selected at random – cue the drumroll and step forward Heather Wild who wins the brace of tickets.

If you were unlucky, or didn’t enter the competition at all, some tickets are still available for this once-in-730-days event. Visit the Garstonbury website or drop into The Queens Arms in East Garston (see links above) to rectify this omission.
