Town vs. Gown Quiz 2019
15th November 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£20
Once again, our brave contestants are to battle it out to see who can win the coveted Bercow Bowl. With two teams, from the Town and from the University, a sparkling and highly competitive encounter is certain.
Our question master is local former Mastermind, Alan Heath.
It’s all in aid of a great cause – supporting home visits for the frail, vulnerable and elderly by the Buckingham Citizens Advice team. This service is funded entirely by charity and depends on your goodwill and generosity. Last year our kind advisers supported local people to receive nearly £380,000 in benefits, enabling them to get their lives back on track – a stunning achievement.
Each year BACAB contributes some £25,000 to keep this vital service going. Friday 15th is our latest chance to encourage your support for our work.
Back to the quiz and the story so far ….. the University, led by team captain Dr Roger Perkins, head of Journalism, are looking for a second victory in a row. Town, led by Rob Lehmann, want to regain their superiority after winning the first 2 competitions. It’s all to play for!
Buckingham is a veritable hotbed of quizzers, as those of you who frequent The Mitre will know. We will also be welcoming Alan’s wife, Heather, fresh from a successful appearance on ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ and we hope to show some clips.
Most importantly, we want you to come along and enjoy the fun!
Do come and join us on Friday 15 November at 7 pm in the Discovering Centre at The Royal Latin School. Tickets are £20 for the evening to include canapes by our talented committee members.
We are grateful to The Royal Latin School and the Lillingstone Trust for letting us hold the event.
Thank you for your support!
Jane Mordue, Chair, BACAB
