Try your luck at our pub quiz; learn a little about your local history and have a laugh at the same time. You don’t need lots of historical knowledge; we promise to keep the questions simple, with only the occasional head scratcher thrown in. The quiz includes a mystery object round, so whilst you’re enjoying your drink, you can also have a guess at a selection of historical objects and replicas.

It’s free to enter a team (of up to five people) and the pub landlord has kindly donated a prize for the winning team. You don’t need to register beforehand, just turn up ready to start at 7:30pm.
