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

Eggheads Series 15 - Contestants Wanted

12 Yard Productions are looking for vibrant and diverse teams to take part in the 15th series of the popular BBC2 quiz show Eggheads.

Eggheads is a game in which 5 members of the public face general knowledge goliaths and try to beat them for a cash prize.  When the Eggheads win, the money rolls over to the next show. Often a huge amount of money can be at stake. 

Each team will consist of 5 team members and 1 standby, so they need teams of at least 6 people. They are holding nationwide auditions over the coming weeks and months. We are keen to find teams from all over the UK.

You can download a copy of the application form from here:

If you need any more information, please contact them by email on: bryce.hart@12yard.com or by phone on 0141 427 2746

It doesn’t matter if people are not part of an existing team, they could consider creating one with work colleagues, friends or even family to compete for the cash prize!

Sad News

It has been brought to our attention that Robin McIntosh, well known to many Orrell players, died shortly before Christmas.

Robin's funeral will be held on Friday January 3rd. The service is at 2pm at Charnock Richard  crematorium, followed by a celebration of Robin's life at 3.00pm at Christ Church Newburgh, then refreshments at the Red LIon.  Family flowers only, but donations welcome to Douglas Valley Lions, a cause for whom Robin worked tirelessly.
