A chance to win tickets to see The Hobbit

Get your thinking caps on, as we have a quiz of brain-teasers this week to help raise funds for the Jam Jar Army.

All of the answers are place names in Northumberland, and anyone who can master them all is in with a chance of winning tickets for two adults and two children to one of the screenings of The Hobbit between December 18 and 22 at Alnwick Playhouse.

Entries cost £1 and the answers should be returned to the Alnwick Playhouse, on Bondgate Without, by Friday, October 5.
