There was no room at the inn, as quiz teams packed the Thomson Pavilion Suite for the annual Xmas Quiz.

But where was mine host? The lights were dimmed, the room hushed … and Gordon Grear revealed his latest creation.

“There is nothing like a Dame” – Gordon reveals why

Had Rudolph got antlers? How many turkeys are consumed at Xmas – in the UK? In the USA? Who recorded “Sleighride”? One fiendish round tested our ability to identify well-known faces disguised by Santa beards.

Spot prizes were won throughout the night, and three teams battled over tiebreakers for the eventual honour of the top prize. The event was crowned with a raffle which rivalled Santa’s grotto for the quantity of fantastic prizes.


Many thanks to Gordon and Emma, helped by Peter and Gill, for not only a brilliant quiz night but also for a superb buffet.
