Win tickets to How To Academy

The UK publishers of The Knowledge, Bodley Head (Random House), are running a twitter competition to win a pair of tickets to the book launch event. The ‘How to Rebuild after the Apocalypse’ event is this Thursday (April 10th) at the How To Academy in Soho, London. Further details on the event at the How To Academy website

To enter for your chance to win, simply Retweet the below message and tell us your answer using the #KnowledgeUK hashtag:


Closes 2pm Tuesday 8th April. More competitions to follow – keep your eye on The Knowledge homepage and Twitter feed @KnowledgeCiv for details.


UPDATE 8-April 2:30pm – The winners have been selected and notified. I loved Jess’s idea, which combined humour and cunning (if not bending the rules just a touch to count Ray Mears with his pockets stuffed full of tools as one object…) and she has been sent a pair of tickets for the How To Academy event.


But we had such a strong response to the competition, with so many great suggestions that we felt we had to award two runners-up as well. Well done Alex and James for your entries – I particularly liked your practical mindedness of a solar-powered electronic library and seed potatoes (and of course a decent Scotch…). You’ve both been sent a hardback copy of The Knowledge.



And I felt that I also had to give an honourable mention to Simon for his efforts at preserving the finer things in life: jazz and tea!
