Located in a converted transit shed on Bristol's historic waterfront, M Shed celebrates the city's history through the stories of its residents and objects from its rich past. One of the collection's most iconic objects is the Pyronaut, a 1934 fireboat which played a key role in battling fires during the Blitz.

We've teamed up with M Shed to offer the chance to win a private boat tour on the Pyronaut for up to six people, heading along the river towards Bath before returning to the museum for tea in its riverside cafe. For your chance to win, simply email comp@artfund.org with the answer to the following question:

Which river runs through the centre of Bristol, connecting it with Bath and Bradford?

The competition closes at 5pm on Sunday 15 April. Please read the Terms and Conditions before entering. The tour will take approximately three hours and can be arranged on a day to suit the winner, subject to crew and boat availability.
