Caught by the River

Competition Results

21st July 2022

Here are the results of our latest newsletter competition…

Last week, we had three copies of Dan Keel’s Swan: Portrait of a Majestic Bird, from Mythical Meanings to the Modern Day to give away, courtesy of Summersdale. We asked:

Which annual custom — this year beginning on the 18th of July — involves the rounding up, capture, ringing, and release of all the mute swans on the River Thames?

And the answer is: Swan upping. The winners are Simon Hanson, Jo Chamberlain and Amanda Maister. Your prizes should be with you very soon!

Thanks for all the entries. To be in with the chance of winning our next prize — one of two copies of Kate Fletcher & Helen Mort’s Outfitting, recently published by Hazel Press — make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list. The sign-up bar is on the right-hand side of this page.
