Christmas has come already for "This ain't Bethnal Green"

Nick H

There was certainly lots of festive cheer and bonhomie tonight in what was the last Quiz Night at The Highwayman before Christmas. There was also plenty of competition for both the £40 bar voucher for coming first and also the £20 bar voucher for being sufficiently skilful to come second last. True to form, "Against all Odds" went (very) close but once again were bridesmaids as were the "Berko Bandits", thus enabling the ladies of a team "Hangers-On" to take the evenings first prize and once again highlight who is the superior species! On this occasion, the same cannot, however, be said for the ladies of "Tube Problems" - oops, I wasn't supposed to make reference to their outcome!

With the absence of serial winners of the £20 second prize "Any Danger!", this evening's prize was available to all-comers and dare I say there were several contenders! It was, however "Partners in Crime" who defended relentlessly (just like Newcastle United) to secure the spoils.

With only two envelops left for the £150 Jackpot cash prize and being the last quiz before Christmas, it was hoped the Jackpot would go tonight, and it did. The delightful "This ain't Bethnal Green" team, relatively new recent residents to the area, won the opportunity to select from the remaining Jackpot envelopes and thankfully correctly selected envelope number 7. Can I say to the lovely (and pregnant) lady of the team, there was no need to run after me up the road after the quiz just to return a pen!!

On behalf of The Highwayman and myself, thank you for your support in 2018 and a merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year to you all. We look forward to seeing you all again at our first Quiz Night in 2019: Wednesday 9th January; 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start as usual.
