Quiz & Games Night "Around the World" - 29th November 2019

An evening of adventure! A quiz and games featuring topics from around the world. Games intended to challenge, entertain you and get one grey matter spiced up.

But primarily a November evening of fun and something to cheer you up. We’ve got a few more jokes which hopefully will provide a laugh and not too many groans! We look forward to seeing you there!

Net proceeds to be donated to Braunstone Town Community Minibus.
