We have devised this Easter quiz to keep culture and art lovers, quizzers, families, and anyone who loves a challenge, amused and entertained whilst at home.  Under the present circumstances and Government advice, our members cannot open their doors to welcome you, but you can visit them virtually, via their websites.

In our quiz, all of the answers can be found on the relevant member’s website.  However, this is a challenge and we want you to hunt that answer out, so it may take some resolve and tenacity and will usually not be found on the home page that you visit.  You may need to enrol friends and family elsewhere, to help you out, or alternatively become a true Sherlock Holmes!

The prize is a card that will give the winner and up to 3 people entry to one of our member venues, with the choice of that venue being the winner’s.  The competition closes at midnight on May 11.

To enter, write all 34 answers on an email, in the order given, along with your name, address, age and best contact telephone number and email address to reply to, if you are successful.  The answer must reference something specifically mentioned on the website given with each question, NOT any other website detailing the venue.  Email your entry to jane@catapultpr.co.uk

All correct entries will be put into a prize draw, from which the winner will be the first entry drawn out of the hat.  The prize is as stated and cannot be exchanged for cash.  No travel expenses or other expenses are included.  Entrants must be aged over 16 and only one entry per household is allowed.
