They look a bit old and tatty! Are they in a museum?

No, they're not in a museum and yes, they did look a bit old and tatty. I saw them when I visited a house during London Open House weekend a few years ago. It was fab (that's a clue!).

Is it significant that there are 4 chairs?

Yes, Jean, it is! Apparently the Fab Four once sat in them in a theatre in Northampton.

Well I have googled the answer and I am still trying to work out why the answer is what it is and I haven't yet, so someone else have a guess first LOL

Hello!

I am guessing at 40?

This is 21 + 17 + 2 = 40

Am I barking up the right tree?

Or 53 - 13 = 40 which is another way of looking at it?

Sorry for the delay.

Anagram time again.  Very Happy

You are looking for six words, alphabetically, the number of letters in each word:

6, 4, 5, 6, 7, 6

They are all on the subject of Greece - four are Food & Drink and two are place names.

Please ignore any punctuation.

Oh my, it's Stefan, he ate Vera's "Tuna Oil" pots!
