Last night, Save the Dyke and the Dyke Pub Preservation Society held a quiz night at Exeter Street Hall to entertain the local community – and to raise funds for the ongoing work to buy the entire Dyke property and garden and run it as a busy, buzzing, versatile community hub (not just a boozer)!

The event was so popular that we regretfully had to close the doors and turn people away due to the limit on numbers allowed. There was much conviviality and a powerful sense of community, which underlines the strength of feeling throughout the area. We’d like to thank everyone who came along and to those who donated wonderful raffle prizes – they were greatly appreciated. Thanks also to Exeter Street Hall for their support and for hosting us!

The winning team walked away with six bottles of Stopham Vineyard wine for their efforts, with the second placed team winning twelve doughnuts from Glazed – and the third place boffins getting a growler of beer from Bison!

For those who couldn’t make it, quizmaster Di Coke has made a copy of her ‘pretty tricky’ quiz questions available for download:

And of course, you can download a version including the answers too…

And here’s the ‘guess the intro’ music round – identify the ten tracks and artists. The initial letter of each song title, when rearranged, will make the name of an alcoholic drink.
