Caught by the River

Competition Results

23rd March 2017

Here are the results of our last couple of newsletter competitions:

First up, we had a pair of tickets for this year’s bluedot festival to give away.

We asked: What is the name of Jodrell Bank’s Grade I listed telescope?

And the answer is: the Lovell Telescope. The winner is Evan Jeffries. The festival will be in contact to arrange your tickets.

Next up, we had three copies of Lucy Jones’s Foxes Unearthed: A Story of Love and Loathing in Modern Britainnow out in paperback – to give away, courtesy of Elliott & Thompson.

We asked: According to Finnish Folklore, the aurora borealis was created when an Arctic fox, running through snow, sprayed up crystals with his tail, causing sparks to fly off into the night sky. But what is the Finnish word for the phenomenon?

And the answer is: revontulet. The winners are John Ingham, Elaine Pereira, and Sarah Williams. Your prizes will be with you very soon.

Thanks, as usual, for all the competition entries. To be in with a chance of winning our next prize – a copy of Stick in the Wheel’s From Here: English Folk Field Recordings compilation – make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list.
