The St Peter’s Church Quiz ’n’ Chips nights are an opportunity to enjoy a convivial evening while helping raise money for local charities. People from across the Didcot community, including teams from local organisations and other churches in the town, come to enjoy one another’s company and battle it out to be quiz night champions.
Quiz Nights are on Saturdays, and doors open at 7.00pm. There are usually between fifteen and twenty tables, each with a team of between six and ten people. A few teams are made up of separate individuals, so it’s always possible to join in even if you’re on your own. The quiz is in two halves, with a break for the food, which is supplied by a local fish’n’chip shop. There is also a licensed bar.
During the break there is a raffle, which raises funds for a charity. This is usually a local good cause. Each year between £1,500 and £2,000 is raised for charities in this way. Representatives from the charity also say a few words about the work they are doing.
The quiz night usually ends at about 10.30pm, and there are prizes for the winning team, as well as a wooden spoon for the losers. Teams also accumulate points in an effort to win the trophy for the entire season.
