The July edition of ‘In the Ballroom’, the social gathering over afternoon tea at the Court House, enjoyed an illustrated presentation about a wide range of ‘Curiosities’ by Graham Sutherland, the local historian and author.
Graham had stepped into the breach after the planned speaker had dropped out. Graham was able to show a small part of his his huge collection of photographs of buildings, statues, artefacts and other curious items he has noticed during his travels at home and abroad.
After the tea and cake, the guests had to use their brain-cells in a quick quiz of curiosities and riddles. Two teams of four guests tied for the first prize with an impressive 11 out of 12 score. Here is a link to the quiz. How many can you get right? In the Ballroom Quiz – Curiosities If you are stuck for an answer, email firstname.lastname@example.org
