    £250 Could be yours

    for just identifying our mystery sound...

    We’ll play the secret sound during breakfast then at 8.15am on The Ben Clark Breakfast Show with Ben one lucky listener will have a chance to guess the secret sound.

    How to Play

    To enter, answer the daily qualifying question by texting YOUR ANSWER & YOUR NAME to 07947 211 311.

    It's a standard text message charge. 

    Every competition round, we'll pick a contestant at random from all the texts received each morning during the competition.

    Only one entry per mobile number will be counted in the draw - there's no advantage in sending multiple texts.

    If you've been chosen to play, we'll call your mobile number, if you don't answer the phone, we'll then select another contestant at random.

    We will never ask you for your guess until you're playing on air. 

    Once you've played, you can enter again another day by answering the qualifying question as soon as you've come up with another guess.

    And of course, if you correctly identify the Secret Sound, you'll win £250.

    Good luck!
