CaptureIt’s time for all local quizzers to start brushing up on their general knowledge ready for the Glendale Agricultural Society’s (GAS) annual quiz night.  Being sponsored by H&H Insurance Brokers, this annual event is always extremely well supported with up to 20 teams of four people, battling their wits against one another.

Open to teams of 4 who must book their places in advance, the quiz will be held at the Tankerville Arms in Wooler on Tuesday 23rdFebruary.   Tickets are priced £8.00 and include fuel for thought with a pie and pea supper, which will be served prior to the quiz at 7pm.

Hosted once again by the familiar face of quiz master Ronald Barber, there will be a range of general knowledge questions including a picture round, geography, history and music round.  There will also be the all-important tie breaker question in the event of a draw, and for those on the losing team, they can stir things up with a wooden spoon.

Part of the full and varied programme of events organised by the Glendale Agricultural Society, the quiz is a highlight of the year as Rachael Tait, Secretary of the Glendale Agricultural Society says here:  “We had a great night at last year’s quiz, with the winning team the Amnesiacs combining their brain power to bag the winning prize of four passes for a day at Kelso races.

“The quiz is open to both members and non-members and everyone can be sure of a really fun and entertaining evening.  It is sure to challenge your knowledge and it always brings out the competitive side in everyone. “

Rachael goes on to say: “This is always a sell-out event so I would encourage people to enter their teams as soon as possible and get their thinking caps on.”
