2018 Something For Everyone Quiznight

A big thank you to everyone who came along to our 2018 Quiznight!

 
We had a full stage of visitors, some brand new to the theatre, fighting for the honour of becoming our 2018 champions. We had lots of laughs, fun & games, delicious food, tempting desserts, and lots of head scratching moments during the evening.
 
I’m sure everyone will be delighted to hear that after costs we raised around £850 which will go towards making this years Play In A Week very special indeed 🙂
 
Thank you everyone!

2017 Something For Everyone Quiz Night

With rounds titled “What’s in the box?”, “Observation”, and “Sounds and music”, the enthusiastic crowd gathered around the packed tables in the Nomad Theatre were humorously challenged by the return of the truly inclusive, “Something for Everyone”, quiz night.

Knowledge of Play In A Week was an advantage to many of our participants and volunteer helpers, but a great time was had by all.

Special thanks must go to a local BUPA Care home for generously providing a lovely selection of deserts.

Our thanks again to everyone who came along and supported this fun event, who bought a raffle ticket or two and also donated raffle prizes.

We hope you enjoyed a thoroughly good evening and we look forward to seeing you at the next event.

2016 Cake and Plant Sale

The rain held off for Joslyn Arnold’s Cake and Plant Sale in Worthing, prompting a flood of locals eager to snap up a bargain and partake of the wonderful array of locally made cakes and biscuits.

Once again the plant side of the afternoon turned into a ‘bring & buy’ sale with visitors bringing trays of extra plants to help raise funds for three good causes including Play In A Week. A big thank you must go to everybody whos contributions resulted in another fantastically successful day.

Our thanks go to Joslyn and Kim, and their army of enthusiastic helpers, for running a fantastic, fun and fabulous fundraising day which has now put over £800 in the Play In A Week pot!

2016 The Grange Has Got Talent!

After the success of the 2014 and 2015 events, The Grange in Bookham held another talent show in May 2016, sharing the proceeds once again with Play In A Week.

The event was very successful, with lots of performers clearly putting a lot of time, thought and energy into their acts.  The audience thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment and everyone had a great evening.

Congratulations and thanks to all the performers who took part and help to raise money.  Thank you as well to all those who bought tickets, and supported the event so generously.

2016 Something For Everyone Quiz Night

A warm and enthusiastic crowd gathered around 10 packed tables on the Nomad Theatre stage for the 2016 quiz night, and included a good number of people who were newcomers to the theatre.

“The Arnolds” had written and delivered a truly inclusive quiz, which provided “Something for Everyone”. As well as general knowledge, observation and whacky numbers rounds, sensory rounds required teams to use touch and feel to identify objects in boxes, and keen listening was required to recognise noises made by everyday objects. Knowledge of Play In A Week was an advantage to many of our participants and volunteer helpers, and a great time was had by all.

Special thanks must go to Richard from ‘Arty Tarty Foods’ for giving up his time to come and cook a fresh hot meal for everyone. Thanks also to a local  BUPA Care home for generously providing a lovely selection of deserts, and also to the ‘Company of Cooks’ for donating all the bread and salads.

Numbers are still being finalised, but we look to have raised a good £800+ for Play In A Week from this event, and the bar takings were very high too, helping to boost the Green Room’s coffers as well as the volume of noise and heckling during the second half!

Our thanks again to everyone who came along and supported this fun event, who bought a raffle ticket or two and also donated raffle prizes.

We hope you enjoyed a thoroughly good evening and we look forward to seeing you at the next event.

Many thanks to Sue Lee, Gavin Sadler, and others for these photos from this fun evening.
