4BR Boxing Day Quiz: The Answers

We reveal the answers to our Boxing Day Quiz — and the person who got them all correct

Quiz
  See if you can get all 20 questions correct?

Thanks to everyone who entered our Boxing Day quiz — with plenty of you getting the answers right and quite a few others not so lucky (perhaps due to the odd glass of festive wine).

Winner

Stefan van der Wilt from Utrecht, and who has just joined Brass Band Rijnmond on euphonium, was the person who tickled his brain cells and got the answers right — and was the first person out of the hat.

A trio of the latest CDs will be on their way to him.
