Huge thank you for the music to everyone who came along to our Abba and Mamma Mia quiz night.  Well done to the Barnsley Kid for winning, and unlucky to the Supertroupers for coming so close.

All the questions and answers to the quiz can be found below.  We have lots of other quiz nights coming up during the year such as Harry Potter, Disney, Sex in the City.

Our quiz nights are held the last Thursday of each month, starting at 8:30 pm and finishing at 10:00 pm (special event quiz nights on Bank Holidays may run longer), so you get to go out on a school night, but still be home in time to get up bright and early.

On a quiz night you can book in prior to the quiz and enjoy a meal before the quiz starts, or you're welcome to come along just for the quiz if tables are available.
