Two great Aylsham events have joined together to present a “Festival of Quizzes”.  The pair of quiz nights, one in April, the other in May, are being staged by Aylsham Wide Sky Festival and Aylsham Food Festival respectively, each having its own distinctive format but offering a discount on ticket prices if you go to both!

Aylsham Town Hall is the venue for both quizzes with the first on Saturday 6th April 2013.  Questions for this will centre around the Aylsham Festival’s 2013 theme of ‘Paths & Patterns’.  Tables will be for up to six people and tickets are just £7 per person, which includes a Ploughman’s Supper.

Regular Aylsham and district quizzers will be familiar with the Food Festival’s annual event where the quizmaster comes up with a hundred or so questions all linked in some way, no matter how tenuous, with food and drink.

This year the Foodie quiz will be on Saturday 11th May, again in the Town Hall with tables for up to six and the ticket price is also £7, this time to include a ‘Savoury Pie Platter’ for all contestants.

In addition to the food on offer at both quizzes, there will be a licensed bar with a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks.

Dedicated quizzers – or those just wanting a couple of sociable fun evenings – will no doubt want to take advantage of the Festival of Quizzes special offer: if you buy tickets for both events at the same time, the normal cost of £14 will be cut to just £12 – a saving of £2!

Tickets for the two quizzes are available from Salad Days fruit & veg stall in the Market Place on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings or log on to the Aylsham Wide Sky Festival website at www.aylshamfestival.co.uk

Aylsham Wide Sky Festival runs this year from Thursday 23rd May to Tuesday 28th May while Aylsham Food Festival, organised by Slow Food Aylsham, will be from Friday 4th October to Sunday 6th October 2013.  There’s more detail at the Aylsham Festival website, above, and at www.slowfoodaylsham.org.uk
