BILLINGFORD QUIZ

I set out in early 2017 to get a few villagers together in the Hall and have a bit of fun. With the help of my 4 fellow question setters, some also doubling up at the events to keep me in order, keeping the score and serving mince pies and sausage rolls at Xmas, we held 2 events each year in 2017, 2018 and 2019.  The events planned for 2020 had to be cancelled for obvious reasons but I hope they will continue from Xmas 2021 on wards.  The first event saw 5 teams attend and in the subsequent 5 events, 6 or 7 teams have attended with 4 different winners.  I trust you will see from the questions we do this for fun, it is not an IQ test or University Challenge.  I hope you enjoy having a go at the historical questions and if you need any answers, or indeed have any comments to make, then email me at alake015@btinternet.com    Hopefully we may see you at the next event, all you need is a team name and £2.00 per person to cover costs.  Remember, under 16's are free and bring your own food and drink.  Good quizzing.
