I'm doing these places in aphabetical (as opposed to chronological) order of visitation, so let's get the footie out of the way first.
Security - Stewards outnumbered by police
(Aston Villa 3 - C Palace 1 - bleedin' penalties, innit. Attendance: 31,874)
Should you manage to make this pilgrimage, be sure to take the ten minute walk around the perimeter of the place to the factory outlet store where you'll be able to buy as much chocolate as you can eat for knock down prices. I got my fill, believe you me. A few more pictures here.
So, onto the competition. We are giving away Cadbury's related goodies to the lucky person who replies with answers worthy of a Golden Ticket. Let's take a look at what you could win. Anthea, please bring on the prizes;
1 x Cadbury Rubik's Cube,
1 x Cadbury World booklet,
4 x Cadbury World drink mats,
6 x vintage Cadbury's picture postcards,
1 x ultra hi-tech Creme Egg USB mouse with mouse mat,
1 x Cadbury World thimball, Flake pen, Cadbury fridge magnet, keyring, leather bookmark and enamel pin badge.
Most items above will be elegantly housed within a Cadbury's vintage style chocolate tin.
I may even chuck in a packet of Koko (unopened) depending on how hungry I get.
People who wish to enter will have to answer in full the following question:
What is the historical link between Aston Villa FC & Crystal Palace FC in relation to the latter's inauguration as a club at the start of the early 1900's?
In the event of a tie-breaker, please complete the following statement:
"I want to have a fat arse and a spotty face this Spring (because / to / for / so that*)...."
