Spring Quiz - Friday 21st April 2017


Following the success of last year’s quiz, we are holding another one this year. It’s going to take place on Friday 21st April 2017 starting at 7pm in St Edward’s Hall. There will be a maximum of 6 people in a team to include, at least, one Civic Society member. If you’d like to come along but you don’t have a team, don’t worry, simply return the form and we’ll find other like-minded people to join you.


The quiz won’t be very academic but a light-hearted, easy-going evening with something for everyone and maybe the odd question about Stow. We’ll have themed rounds with each team choosing when to play their Joker to double their points. There will also be a picture marathon round running through the evening to test your powers of observation and a nostalgic music round. We will provide nibbles on the tables and a cash only bar during the evening. The cost will be £5 per head and there will be prizes for the winning and losing teams plus a prize for the most entertaining team name chosen by our quizmaster, John Ramsbottom. John is a seasoned ‘quizzer’ and helps run the popular winter quizzes at the Queens Head in Stow.
