Trivia ‘Fun’draising at the Abbey Museum

Trivia at the Abbey Museum – it’s here to stay!

Trivia Night at the Abbey Museum has been held regularly for a few years and historically we have always had similar numbers of players attend. Now, our reputation for providing an entertaining evening and fantastic supper has reached a wider audience, making our recent November trivia night the most successful to date! And did we have fun?!

Need more chairs!

It was fantastic to see so many tickets purchased online and twenty-one adults and seven children took advantage of this, so we arranged a couple of tables additional to our usual number to accommodate them.  This was great, however we were in for a surprise and did not anticipate the large number of people who paid at the door.  In fact, we had to find extra tables and chairs to seat them. What a great problem to have!

On the night there were thirteen teams (over seventy people) vying for Trivia supremacy. Competition and rivalry was keen, and nobody wanted to be outdone! Fortunately there was plenty of supper to ensure energy did not lag and competition remained keen until the final question was asked, raffles drawn and lucky door prizes awarded.

Everyone enjoyed a great night of entertainment which raised just over $1000 towards the conservation cost of the beautiful Musketeer stained glass window currently on display in the Museum with “Gustav” the 16th century suit of armour.  What a great result!

Don’t miss the next Trivia night!

Mark Saturday 10th March 2018 in your diaries for the next Abbey Trivia Night and invite all your friends… we are happy to source as many extra tables and chairs as needed!  So keep your brains sharpened as we expect even trickier questions from our Quizmaster Libby in 2018.  See you all then!
