Autumn Quiz 2018


Thanks to everyone who turned out for last nights quiz at the Brunswick Hotel, Charminster. Over 40 people battled it out and the winning team triumphed by just 1/2 a point!

Thanks to David Rogers for setting the questions, Lucy Freeman for running the raffle and Sally Hawksworth for being Master (or mistress?) of ceremonies on the night. Thanks again to the Brunswick for providing us with an excellent function room.

We raised £250. With overseas postage now starting at £1.25 this is a great boost to our funds. And much more fun than doing a street collection. If you missed out, below are five of the more challenging questions to have a go at. Answers in the next newsletter.

“The Silent Child” won an Oscar this year for best Short Film. It was written and directed by actors from which UK TV soap? 

Singer Aretha Franklin died in August. She only had one film role where she played a character called Mrs Murphy and wore pink fuzzy slippers. Name the film (or its sequel)?  

Born in Cardiff in 1948, singer Michael Barratt, the UKs biggest selling singles artist of the 1980’s, is better known as who? He’s appearing at Bournemouth Pavilion next March.  

Which is the only country in the world where cars drive on the right, but virtually every vehicle has right hand steering?

The film “the Lost World” (adapted from a Arthur Conan Doyle novel of the same name), was released in 1925 and got its place in history for what? Was it? (1) First X rated film (2) First colour film on public release (3) First film used as in flight entertainment on a plane?
