Our next big event is our Town vs Gown quiz on 25th November. It is to be held at The Lillingstone Trust Community Laboratory at the Royal Latin School in Buckingham. The Rt Hon John Bercow, MP for Buckingham and Speaker of The House of Commons wil be the quizmaster, assisted by Alan Heath who is the BBC Mastermind 2016. Two teams; one from The University of Buckingham and the other, made up of Buckingham residents will compete for supremacy in this challenge. The event will begin at 6,30pm with drinks and canapes before the quiz itself starts after a short showing of televised highlights of the 2016 BBC Mastermind Final. The price is £15 and all proceeds will go to support our local CAB. For tickets and more information please contact
The date for our next bridge event has been confirmed as 19th April 2017. More details will follow, but the format will be similar to this year's event, with a few tweaks to make sure things run even more smoothly.
BRIDGE EVENT AT STOWE
This was a great success, raising over £3,500 and enjoyed by all those who attended. The day started off with coffee and a tutorial in the morning. During the lunch break, guests got the opportunity to explore other rooms in the house and also the newly finished Discovery Centre. After lunch there were competitions and prizes and certificates were awarded to the winners and runners up in both the Duplicate and Chicago categories.
