The Big Quiz Night News

 

 

Quiz fans gathered together for an evening at The Pavilion recently, ready to put on their thinking caps (or rather their memory caps!) for the Big Quiz Night.

The fundraising event was held in Wolverhampton on 20th February, to raise money for Deaffest 2015, the UK's leading Deaf-led Film and Arts Festival.


The event was attended by over 100 people, amongst them MEP Rob Marris!  Matthew and Deirdre welcomed the teams and introduced the quiz's theme - 2014.  There were 12 categories, one for every month of the year, with each set of questions relating to what happened in that month last year.

Jackie and Lou did an amazing job of keeping the scores for the 23 teams. The event sadly came to an end but the fun didn't stop there, the raffle event took place with a lot of prizes up for grabs.  The winners of the Big Quiz Night was later revealed...

We're delighted to announce that 5th place went to True Deafies, 4th place was tied by Wolverhampton Ponderers and Alp! and 3rd place was also a tie between TGIF and The Mutants on Table 9. 2nd place went to Bobby Beale with 1st place going to 3 Oldies and a Baby!


Congratulations to the winners!

That's not the only good news though... from this event we raised just under £400!! This will go towards the workshops taking place at Deaffest 2015. 

The Deaffest team would like to thank everybody who got involved in the fun and we hope everyone enjoyed themselves!
