With just weeks to go until the return of one of the UK's most popular family history events, we have six tickets to the event available to be won.

The Yorkshire Family History Fair, which will take place at The Knavesmire Exhibition Centre at York's racecourse on Saturday, 25 June, will feature more than 40 family history societies from around the country.

The fair has been running for the past 15 years, and this year's event is set to be one of the largest yet. As well as representatives from major online resources, including Ancestry.co.uk, findmypast.co.uk and show sponsors TheGenealogist.co.uk, members of the Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine team will also be offering exclusive subscriptions deals and copies of the Who Do You Think You Are? Encyclopedia of Genealogy for the first 50 new subscribers.

We've also teamed up with event organisers to offer readers six free places at the event. To be in with a chance of winning one of the tickets, simply answer the following question: What was the real name of Yorkshire vet James Herriott? Send your answers to Matt Elton at mattelton@bbcmagazines.com, making sure to include 'Yorkshire Family History Fair competition' in the subject line. We'll choose six correct answers from those received before the closing date of 4pm on Monday, 20 June. Good luck!
