Bolingbroke's Quiz Night coming soon - make sure you don't miss it!

Do you know which country boasts the largest coastline? Or which book starts with the immortal lines: “It was a bright cold day in April and the clocks were striking thirteen.”*

If not, it’s time you started swotting up on your general knowledge, as its that time of year when it’s the turn of Bolingbroke’s parents to put their brainpower and memory to the test for the great school quiz, which has become one of the most fun events in the school’s social calendar.

Teams of eight battle it out to win the coveted top prize by answering a number of different themed rounds – each year the quiz is slightly different as it’s organised by the previous year’s winners but typically the topics include such subjects as history, current affairs, geography, music, sport as well as the local area.

So find some friends and organise yourself into a team, though if you’re not in a team already, don’t worry as you can be joined up with some like-minded teammates.

The event, organised by the Parents Association, will be held on November 8th, and we urge you to get involved. It’s a really great night out, so bring cash or a card for the pay bar, and your own food and snacks to keep you suitably refreshed and revved up for the taxing brain-teasers!

The event is once again very generously being sponsored by John Thorogood Real Estate Agents, so a big thanks to them for their continued support.

When: Friday November 8th at 7.30pm – 11pm

Where: The Commons, Bolingbroke Academy

Tickets priced at £10 per person are available from Classlist.


*Answers, by the way are: 1) Canada, and 2) 1984 by George Orwell. But we're sure you knew that!
