Abingdon’s Literary Quiznight for charity,
returns for a third outing on
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 3rd,
Quiz starts at 7.30pm
at the MANOR PREP SCHOOL,
Faringdon Rd, Abingdon, OX13 6LN
(click here for map.)
Entry £5 in advance, £6 on the door.
The quizmaster is me once again, assisted by Mark and staff from our town’s wonderful independent bookshop Mostly Books.
This year we will be raising money for two local charities - SeeSaw which supplies grief support for the young in Oxfordshire, and Abingdon Alzheimer’s Club which provides daycare for dementia sufferers at Abingdon Community Hospital.
There will be questions, there will be prizes, there will be a cash bar (from 7pm). There will be a magnificent trophy and the accolade of being crowned ‘Mostly Bookbrains of the Year’ for the winning team.
There will also be the return of the infamous bookswap table – bring along a book you’d like to share and recommend (or one you couldn’t stand and can’t wait to see the back of!) and grab something different.
As before, there will be no shortage of bean-burnishing and brain-straining, but it should be a great deal of fun. Come as a team – but if you don’t have a team, don’t worry – teams will be formed on the night.
So – think you know your Lee Child from your Lionel Shriver? Spot a Penguin Classic from a celebrity biography? Why not pit your literary wits against others to compete for the team prize of Mostly Bookbrains of the Year?
