I know I've posted this question before, sorry if it's cheating!

Which city connects Abba, an unusual building and a literary confection?

Is this BRIGHTON?

ABBA - In 1974,  the unknown group ABBA took to the stage in Brighton for the Eurovision Song Contest. They won with "Waterloo". This was the start of their path to worldwide fame.

UNUSUAL BUILDING - Brighton's Saltdean Lido. Grade II* listed building.

LITERARY CONFECTION - Graham Greene's Novel "Brighton Rock", (1938).

Yes, it is Brighton - except the unusual building I was thinking of is the Brighton Pavilion. I like the Saltdean Lido though.

Over to you, Wendy.

What one word name connects George Osborne, a Restaurant in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and Monty Don?

No, sorry Susie, nothing to do with food other than the fact that the restaurant serves food but don't focus on the food itself.

Nothing to do with a garden, sorry Jean.

Although one of them, you might find it it the garden at some point although it is not a plant or a gardening tool.

Remember, you are looking for a name.     Very Happy

It is the same name in each case but what it refers to, is different.

OK, sorry, it is not such an intellectual question as the one about Brighton.

The name of one of them refers to a four legged friend, then that name has a link to the other two.

I hope that helps!   Very Happy

It can't be Nigel can it Wendy? Not sure why though, except that Nigel is Monty Don's golden retriever.

No, sorry Joy, although I do love watching Nigel on Gardeners' World! Apparently he has quite a following!
