Final Call: Eagle Bookshop Anniversary Quiz

Published on 16 September 2021

Event in Bedford Town Centre

“Which Eagle was famously a first for Britain – and a joyous last for the rest of the world – in 1988?”

(The answer, incidentally, lived in Bedford for a while, and was often seen near the Eagle Bookshop’s old premises in Castle Road.)

This is just one of 30 brainteasers compiled by the Eagle Bookshop to confound and confuzzled the good people of Bedford, in celebration of the Bookshop’s 30th Anniversary. There are questions for everyone, as well as some questions that you are advised to “come at sideways.”

Prizes will be awarded to the three top performers, of £90, £60 and £30 in vouchers, which can be redeemed in the Eagle Bookshop.

Quiz papers can be collected, and entries handed in, to the Eagle Bookshop counter. Alternatively, you can enter by email to

Remember: All entries must be submitted by 30th September.

Good luck!
