Quiz Night at the Ale House 18 October

It’s Quiz Night at The Ale House, Butt Road, Colchester tomorrow, 20:00. We’re feeling pretty confident as our teams came first and second at the quiz in Rayleigh on Friday (see previous post). But Fred’s questions can be tricky and the competition is fierce (‘Billy no Mates’ and ‘Thirsty Moose’ to name but two big hitters). Come along and bring yer brain!
