Win studio tour with Sir George Martin
7:00am Friday 2nd March 2007 in Competitions
READERS of The Oxford Times can win a tour of Sir George Martin's studios by the legendary Beatles producer himself.
Sir George is honorary producer of this year's Fly To The Past festival, to be held at Blenheim Palace on July 22.
And to promote the event, he has offered to give readers of The Oxford Times the chance to win a guided tour of his Air Studios.
Long before Sir George met The Beatles, he flew a Swordfish biplane - nicknamed the 'Stringbag' - as an officer in the Royal Navy.
The world's only surviving Swordfish will be flying over Blenheim at this year's Fly To The Past show, accompanied by Sir George's Stringbag Serenade composition.
Along with a friend, the competition winner will be taken to London and given a tour of the studios - including lunch for two and a sit-in on a live recording. The day will be rounded off with a gift pack.
The Fly To The Past event takes place from 9am until 9pm on Sunday, July 22. Tickets are on sale now from 01993 822822 or at www.flytothepast.com.
To be in with a chance of winning simply answer the simple question on page three of the current issue of The Oxford Times.
Send your answer with your name, address and a daytime contact number on a postcard to Sir George Martin Air Studios Competition, Promotions, The Oxford Times, Osney Mead, Oxford OX2 0EJ, by no later than Monday, March 12, 2007. Normal Newsquest rules apply.
