THERE are still three chances to win a family VIP ticket to see the Queen’s Theatre pantomime this Christmas with our Robin Hood Caption Competition.

One lucky reader is already off to the depths of ‘Sherwood Forest’ in Barnstaple on December 17 to enjoy the VIP experience and meet the cast after the show.

Vivianna Price from Bideford came up with ‘Maid Marion who? Get me that gorgeous, statuesque Verity!’ for our first picture, featuring ‘Sheriff of Nottingham’ Jon Wadey astride a cannon.

The picture sent to us by North Devon Theatres this week shows Little John, Alan-a-Dale and Friar Tuck enjoying a much-needed beverage.

The prize for a family of four includes goody bags for the kids, drinks vouchers for all, a programme signed by the cast and an invitation to the after-show party for drinks and nibbles with a chance to meet the cast.

To enter, email your caption suggestion, plus your name, address and telephone number to or post to: Caption Competition, North Devon Gazette, Unit 3, Old Station Road, Barnstaple, EX32 8PB. Closing date for entries is 10am on Tuesday, November 27.

Prizes are for the December 17 show only and are not transferable. The editor’s decision is final. Usual terms and conditions apply.
