We have a winner for our trip of a lifetime.
Throughout the month of June, we ran a competition offering two people the chance to experience the wonders of Venice and its world famous Biennale with flight and accommodation worth up to £1000.
Also included in our prize bundle alongside tickets to the Biennale its self, was entrance to Damien Hirst’s blockbuster exhibition 'Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable' and tickets for the city’s Guggenheim Museum.
We had 39 correct answers out of 90 entrants to the question ‘What year did The British Pavilion first open at the Venice Biennale?’
The correct answer was 1909 and we are thrilled to announce that the winner drawn at random was Mr A Knight from Malborough, whom we wish a very enjoyable trip!
Meanwhile, running alongside the Biennale is Damien Hirst’s triumphant return to centre stage with his long-awaited new solo exhibition. The body of work is based on a fictional shipwrecked vessel with a plethora of sculptures excavated from the seabed off the coast of Africa.
Be sure to keep an eye out for future competitions and other chances to win fabulous prizes.
