As you get older, Christmas tends to stop being about presents. The focus inevitably shifts towards a prescribed list of things; namely food, embarrassing yourself at the office Christmas party, being genuinely thrilled when you receive socks, pretending to like mulled wine and Baileys, and falling out with your family over a board game or quiz.
If this year, you’re ready to show your family who’s boss when it comes to the Christmas quiz, you’d better get some practice in. The Bay Horse Tavern will be hosting The Christmas Quiz in the dining room downstairs on Tuesday 18th December for £2 per person, and it’s the perfect place to brush up on your skills so that you’ll easily secure the win on Christmas Day.
There’s cash prizes and booze to be won, so it’s pretty serious stuff. They’ve also got some pretty exciting seasonal tipples going, to help ease the nerves. Choose from a Gin Copa, created by pairing sweet Lustau Pedro Ximenez Sherry with Beefeater Gin, lemon, and topped with zest Sicilian lemon tonic, and the Festive Flip, which is a creamy concoction of East India Solera Sherry, fig liqueur, cream and egg white, or your choice of Festive Beers.
Take your pick.
So gather your closest quizzards and head down to The Bay Horse Tavern on Tuesday 18th December from 7pm to hone your Christmas Quiz skills – because this really is the year that you show your know it all relatives what you’re made of.
