On 16 July the BBC History Magazine team travelled to Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire to take part in this year’s English Heritage Festival of History. Hundreds of readers visited us at our stand in the pavilion area to talk to us about the magazine, subscribe, purchase the magazine, or complete our Tudor quiz.

We collected all the quiz entries and the winning name has now been drawn, at random, from the details of everyone who completed the quiz by 6pm (GMT) on 17 July 2011. We’re delighted to announce that Sally Puddephatt from Leicester was our winning entrant!

Sally says: “I was so pleased to win the BBC History Magazine Tudor quiz; this is the first time I’ve ever won anything! I’ve attended the Festival of History for the last eight years and have always had a great time whatever the weather.”
