Bookmark and Share

Star of Wonder @ Lichfield Cathedral, 2017 After 22 days of astral music, the 2017 #AdventQuiz is over. For those that found certain days a challenge, we only received two correct entries on Day 16, and nine each on days 3, 17 and 22. The easiest day was day 2 with 31 correct entries.

Although there were a group of dedicated individuals who entered every day, only one person succeeded in getting all 22 correct. So this year's outright winner is Dan Soper. Second place (with a score of 20) is split three ways between David Noble, Gilly French and Stephen Harrison. Honourable mentions go to those scoring 19: David Barton, Gary Cole, Nigel Argust and Patsy Howes. The daily winners, picked at random, are listed below.

The pictures can still be accessed through the introduction page and they are now captioned with the answers; all the answers, with a daily winner picked at random from the correct entries, are listed below.
