Although our Peter Blake limited edition sold out within 48 hours of release, we kept one back as a prize if anyone could name all the stars that Sir Peter lined up in front of the Empire Theatre.

The competition is now closed. The answers can be viewed by clicking on the link under the picture or feel free to give the quiz a go just for fun.

We had 318 entries, of which 171 got over 35 correct and went into the draw. Sir Peter Blake drew the winning ticket, which was Paul Beard, a music hall fan from Herefordshire. Congratulations to him!

  • 2= Terry Harrison and Thomas Patterson with 49.
