The competition (below) attracted a good number of entries, all of which were correct – perhaps unsurprisingly since (a) the questions were deliberately extremely easy to answer and (b) the correct letters – B, D, I – were adumbrated in the instruction to 'keep a beady eye on this page'!
Out of the hat (thanks, Bertha) came the name of Bill Roberts, from the town of Gillingham (not the one in Dorset or Norfolk). We'll be in touch soon with Royal Leamington Spa, and an agreed password will ensure that the real winner and his consort, rather than scoundrels adopting his name, get guest-list admittance to this eagerly-awaited show!
Well done Bill, and commiserations to all the other entrants, whose names are too numerous to list here: we hope you'll all get tickets anyway and enjoy a great show. Thanks once again to Chris, at the venue, for this generous promotion.
The lucky winner in this prize competition will have his or her name – and a friend's – added to the guestlist for this highly promising Procol Harum solo gig (thus saving the price of two tickets). It's the band's only UK show this year, and their first show in this country since BtP booked them for the Fortieth Anniversary Celebrations in July 2007.
