4BR Quiz: New Year's Quiz

A little bit of a post celebration brain tickler for you to work out to get your hands on a great percussion prize from Normans Musical Instruments.

4BR

 

Our New Year Quiz has two parts to it to make it just a little harder—simply because it’s such a great prize and we are feeling a little hung over from the celebrations....

Prize:

The first person pulled out of the hat will get their hands on a fabulous A-Star hand-made, 9” Painted Djembe drum—the ideal gift to get rid of any post New Year headaches and keep your hard working percussion section happy...

It looks and plays brilliantly too, thanks to our friends at Normans Musical Instruments — who currently have a brilliant 10% extra discount sale on too!

Which leads us on to our two part question.

You have to get both parts right to win the prize.
