1ST PRIZE: A wonderful 3-night trip for two to Paris.

Paris is a global centre for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its 19th-century architecture is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. It would be perfect for a weekend away just before Christmas!

2ND PRIZE: Two tickets for the SOLD OUT Liam Gallagher gig at Manchester Arena on 20th November.

Liam Gallagher is coming home as part of a massive new tour following the release of his new album ‘Why Me? Why Not’ in September. The former Oasis frontman always puts on a great show and there’s bound to be some Oasis classics thrown into the setlist.

3RD PRIZE: Two tickets for the SOLD OUT Primal Scream gig at Albert Hall Manchester on 26th November.

The release of Primal Scream’s retrospective ‘Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll – The Singles’ is a timely reminder of one of British music’s most essential bodies of work.
