Quiz Nights

The Lock Down Quiz

Thank you to Peter James and Malcolm Tibble for organising a successful and regular Lock Down quiz during the current crisis. There has been a good response so far and I am sure they will be happy to have more joining them. Peter reports……

We have now held two quizzes. Only a few have admitted to taking part by submitting their scores!    Why not join us?

Results are right but who’s worried about scores!





Next Great Massingham Village Quiz

No date available due to lockdown.  Please read about our Lockdown Quiz above.

Entry £2 per contestant

Questions start at 7:30 pm prompt in the bar of the village hall, on the fourth Thursday of every month.  Raffle included. Proceeds are divided between the winners & the Village Hall.

For 2020, as well as the usual gang of inquisitors, we have some new offers & challengers as well, so we should be in for a varied & entertaining season.

Quizzes this year will be held on the fourth Thursday from January to May, then a summer break, reforming in September through to November.  As usual, there will be a raffle, but the quiz format will be entirely up to the person(s) setting the quiz.

If you want to be kept updated on quiz news & events, please email Peter James, peterthetoggie@gmail.com.

As usual, you are receiving this & other emails as a result of your interest in the event. If you no longer wish to be included, please let me know. Also, more importantly, tell your friends & neighbours what a fun time can be had & (with their permission of course) have them added to the email notifications list.

About Great Massingham Quiz Nights….     Message From leader Peter James

Hi Fellow Quizzers & Quizmasters, November 2019

Another great evening under the stern questioning of Malcolm Tibble! There was a great turn out of contestants, including five new members from the “younger generation”. They were very welcome, especially on my team with their sporting knowledge!

There is one more quiz in November before we have a Christmas break. Then for 2020, we have a new quiz master joining the team. So quizzes for January – April  will feature four different quizzers.

The other great news is as follows;

We normally make a donation to the village hall from the proceeds of the quiz. Last night, I suggested that, as a one off, as we had just lost Jaquie to her long battle with cancer, we should instead make a donation to Tapping House who did so much to make her last few weeks with us possible. Not only was this unanimously received, but the winning teams also added their winnings to the sum! So, I have passed on £78.00 to Barry to be forwarded in her memory.

Thank you very much to all who took part & helped to make this a very special evening.

Don’t forget, if you wish to get your revenge & challenge the quiz masters, you are very welcome to hold a quiz of your own. The raffle, score sheets, jokers etc will all be provided along with any assistance you may require. The rest is up to you to decide!
