To enter the competition

You can also enter a prize draw to win a Horrible Histories Rotten Romans Puzzle, and entry is free. All you need to do is find the five hidden letters in the photographs, unjumble the special Easter word and tell us what you think the word is! The competition runs from Saturday 27th March to Sunday 11th April and this competition is open to children of all ages.

Ask a parent or guardian to use the contact form on our Contact Us page and tell us:

  • Your name
  • Contact email
  • What the special Easter word is

A winner will be chosen at random from the entries and will be announced on Tuesday 13th April 2021 on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
