QUIZ NIGHT – BOOK NOW BEFORE IT SELLS OUT!

The Golden Boots are being burnished ready for their big night as trophy for the winning team along with some excellent prizes donated by local businesses.

This popular event gives walkers and friends a chance to socialize and have fun during the festival. Our excellent Quiz Master refuses to leak any clues about this year’s questions, but they are always a good mixture with something for everyone – so come and have some fun!

There will be a licensed cash bar and a delicious hot and cold buffet. Please let us know of special dietary requirements when booking.

You can book at The Pound or via the Book Now button on the Saturday Evening tab:
