The Summer party is fast approaching!
Here are all the details from Emma B:
We have arranged for a Pub Quiz around Bath followed by an early dinner.
For the pub quiz we will need teams of 4 which I will arrange and distribute; and for the early dinner we need to pre-order. More details below on both.
The plan is to meet outside The Crystal Palace on Abbey Green at 2.30pm where we will be given:
· An introduction to the tour & the ideas behind it.
· A miniature pub chalk board & chalk (one per team).
Each team will come up with a Pub Quiz Team Name, which will eventually be entered into The Bath Pub Tour Hall of Fame.
The questions are multiple-choice /educated-guess questions about pub culture & Bath history with a few bizarre trivia facts thrown in.
We leave The Crystal Palace and walk up through town for about 45 minutes. It doesn't feel like going for 'a walk' though. It is very gentle & familiar. It's probably about 15 minutes walking & the rest standing outside 'lost & forgotten pubs' & trying to imagine what they were like. We'll stop 3 x 10 minutes with 5 minutes between each stop.
Then we'll go to an actual pub & have a drink & some snacks! At this point we will have a beer expert speak briefly about local brewers & about the particular ale we are tasting. This is an opportunity to sit down for 15-20 minutes.
From this pit-stop, we'll do another 15 minutes walking + 30 minutes standing & answering questions before we get to The Bell on Walcot Street where the winners will be announced! and the tour ends.
Once finished we will move to Bistrot Pierre (at Princess Buildings, 4 George Street) for an early evening 2 course dinner approximately 5.30/6pm.
Please see the menu - circulated by email - as we need to pre-order.
There are no restrictions on the menu and you can pick either starter/main or main/dessert.
Please can you let me have your choices ASAP.
Any questions - please let me know - thanks!
