Barnet Liberal Democrats' Quiz Supper on Saturday 12 November

June is unavailable for comment
Do you enjoy sitting in draughty church halls, eating fried food and answering trivia questions while people shout "We can't hear!" at the quizmaster in a tone that implies that he's talking too quietly on purpose? If so, then Barnet Liberal Democrats' Quiz Supper this Saturday could be the event for you. Because, this week on Terry and June, Terry (played as ever by Matthew Harris) is again setting and asking the questions at this annual event, with the usual hilarious consequences. Questions that I posed at last year's event included: "In the British Cabinet, who is the Secretary of State for Wales?" (it's Cheryl Gillan), "What is a Worcester Pearmain?" (it's an apple) and "Could my life get any more like an episode of Ever Decreasing Circles?" (that question remains unanswered).

Sorry. I am only joking. These events are great fun and raise a lot of money for the Local Party. The fish and chips are coming from a really good place that's actually a restaurant as well as a takeaway joint and will be very good. And the church hall won't really be draughty. So, the event starts (with fish and chips followed by a quiz, with a break later on for coffee and dessert) at 7pm on Saturday 12 November, at St Johns Church Hall, Friern Barnet Lane, N20 0LW in Whetstone in North London. Very near the Tube Station and on lots of bus routes. It's £15 per person including supper (fish and chips or a vegetarian alternative). You're welcome to bring a bottle of wine to drink; beer will be available in return for a donation. Please also bring things to go into the raffle as prizes. 

There'll be no politics, so this is an event for everyone - you can either come as part of a team (we're aiming for teams of eight to nine people), or if you come on your own, we'll allocate you to a team. So that we know about numbers (and people's dietary requirements - my dietary requirement is a three-course meal ordered from the a la carte menu at the Hotel de la Matelote in Boulogne), you must please email Geoff Jacobs on Any friends of mine reading this who fancy coming along, please give me a shout and we can sort that out. Hope to see lots of people there.
