Finding ourselves with a 'spare' Middlewich Diary Quiz we've decided to brighten up your Good Friday evening at the Boar's Head, and raise some money for the British Heart Foundation. 

We're pleased to welcome on board Eddie Bath, bingo caller extraordinaire, who we met during our short-lived sojourn at the King's Lock earlier this year and who offered his services, as he always does, free of charge. 

In fact Eddie's always on hand to provide his expertise in aid of a good cause.

UPDATE (13th APRIL 2019)

The rounds for the quiz this time around will be:

1) Easter. What do you know about Easter, its traditions and its history? Come to that, what do we know? Seven questions about Easter, plus three of Mr Roberts' favourite 'Call My Bluff' questions.

2) Mystery Voices. Taken from adverts and TV shows over the years. Who are all these people?

3) The Music Round. Tons of tunes from the last sixty years, with a little bit of Easter frivolity thrown in. Nine tracks which were Easter number ones from the 1950s until the 2010s, plus one song that can't not be played at any Easter quiz.

4) Dead Or Alive. An old favourite. Are these people dead or alive? We're not talking about the Boar's Head regulars, but these famous people from all walks of life.

5) The picture round. Celebrities at Easter. Who's this lot then...…?

Update (20th April 2019):
