Quiz event in Rochdale - 9th August 2014

A Quiz Event will be held at Rochdale Town Hall on Saturday 9th August starting at 11:30.

There will be a short individual written quiz in the morning, and in the afternoon there will be a variety of team quizzes and buzzer quizzes.

Because we have made a very good deal with the Town Hall, there will only be a nominal fee of £5, with any surplus going to charity. The Town Hall canteen should be open for hot and cold drinks and hot and cold food.

If you have any questions or suggestions for the afternoon's quizzing, please do not hesitate to get in touch. However, there are some details on Facebook here:   Quiz in the North
