WIN!!!! Competition to win goodies!

Did you know it is #InternationalCrosswordDay on Friday 21st December?! Well…We thought we would have a bit of fun and create a little crossword competition for you. Entries are now open!

We will be announcing the winner via our social channels and on our website on #InternationalCrosswordDay. This gives you a week!

What will you win? Well, we are giving away a bundle of UTSf goodies, including a full weekend ticket to our 2019 festival! If you have bought your tickets already, you can now invite someone else to enjoy it with you! Maybe someone who hasn’t experienced Underneath the Stars before. 👍

(but…you can keep the goodies…well it is Christmas!🎄)

We are sure you can guess the theme… Yep, all the answers have something to do with our festival. 🎪✨

Once you have completed the puzzle, there are 2 acts that we have had at our past festivals to unscramble – one highlighted in red and one highlighted in yellow.

Once you have the answers, enter the competition, by simply clicking here.

Good luck stargazers!
