Our latest quiz took place on Friday 17 June at Shrewsbury House.
Another sold-out event, the keen quizzers were treated to a first-class show by Dee and Geoff, joined by two members of the improv group, The ImprovShrews, which meets at Shrewsbury House. They were called in for the films round, when they gleefully acted out some key scenes from ‘on the waterfront’ ‘whatever happened to baby jane’ and most memorably, ‘Grease’!
Our stand out winners on the night were a team of just 2 members – trouncing all the six member quiz teams.
Thanks go to Shrewsbury House staff, including the wonderful bar team, Sonia Maloney, the ever-excellent Geoff and Dee.
We can’t wait for the next one!
This sold-out walk happened on Friday 10th June and was a really amazing insight into our park and how the past is still indelibly marked on the present.
From the earliest times when different tribes carved up the area to avoid feuds to the pioneering work of the outdoor schools, working to rehabilitate children whose health was impacted by social conditions and pollution, Andy walked us through the decades.
An inspiring and thought provoking event which we are really hoping to repeat again soon!
