Quiz Night


Every Tuesday night at 8.30pm we have our popular Charity Jackpot General Knowledge Quiz hosted by either Quizmaster-Liz or Quizmaster-Claire. With your team, the aim is to have a fun and sometimes challenging evening with a little bit of banter with the Quizmaster and near by teams over drinks and some great food.

Entry is currently £1 with proceeds going to our in-house charity The Hedgehogs.

Please note: Our weekly quiz will return on 9th January 2018.

Open Mic

Every last Thursday of the month our friend Vic Cracknell runs an Open Mic Night at 8pm. Vic manages to find some amazing young and not so young emerging talent which always provides an entertaining mix. If you wish to take a turn on the mic, Vic can be contacted on 07917 403052 or link to his web site www.vicsbuskers.co.uk
