WIN a prize from the Idler!

Posted May 28th, 2020

The Idler is a magazine and online academy for proper loafers, edited by our friend Tom Hodgkinson. He's a believer in the simple things in life. Like building sheds, reading books and baking bread.

To win a signed copy of Tom's brilliant bestselling book How to Be Idle, and an online course guiding you step-by-step through the art of idling, simply answer the following question: Which band had a hit with the song 'Lazy Sunday Afternoon'?

Is it:

a. The Clash
b. The Beatles
c. The Small Faces

Shoot your answer to [email protected] or pop it on our Facebook page or Twitter feed by Monday 1st June. We'll pick one lucky winner at random and announce them on our blog the very next day.

Good luck!
