Friends of Downside Autumn Quiz

On Saturday 8th October the Friends of Downside hosted an Autumn Quiz  in the Weld Cafe to raise funds for a Green Room as part of the Downside Theatre renovation project.

Six teams competed in this, the third quiz hosted by the Friends, and as before there was much amusement and some heated banter over both the questions and the answers!

We were delighted to welcome some new faces – particularly the winning team, The Lemons. Representing St Benedict’s parish the Lemons easily swept the board for each round.. It was clear that we were up against a team who may well have taken part in a few quizzes before!

The catering department produced a wonderful curry and delicious strawberry cheesecake and the welcome glass of Prosecco or Kir Royale was an excellent beginning to a very entertaining evening.

Many thanks to the Friends Committee who worked so hard to make the evening a great success, particularly Martha Walker our excellent quiz master. Thanks also go to Dom. Michael Clothier who joined us for a drink at the beginning of the evening and who said Grace for us all before the serious work of quizzing began!
