Mad Hatters 2 Pub Quiz

Nearly a hundred people turned up for the ‘Mad Hatters 2’ Pub Quiz at the Prince of Wales in Covent Garden on 2nd October. The quiz was run by ‘Guide London’ (the Association of Professional Tourist Guides) and half of the participants were tourist guides keen to demonstrate the depth and breadth of their knowledge. The rest came from various walks of life and included friends of Sam, as well as friends and colleagues of Keith.

Approximately £900 was raised for ‘Go Make It Happen. Some of our beneficiaries were present on the night, two of whom hot-footed it from a Blue Badge Tourist Guide training course lecture on Canterbury. I’m sure they were impressed with how all that acquired knowledge is put to such a useful purpose.

Prizes went to:

  • Winning team: ‘The Perfect Ten’ consisting of Jon Brahms, Tony Hall, Britt Lonsdale, Nigel Rundstrom and Jitka Navratilova.
  • Brain of the APTG: Mike Armitage
  • Best Hat: Delianne Forget

Thanks to Tour Guides Ltd, Antonia Cometa and an anonymous donor for the prizes. And thanks to everyone for making it a great night.

About Keith

Hi I am Keith. Sam was my son and together with close friends and family we set up 'Go Make It Happen!' in Sam's memory and with his spirit running through it. The aim is to help young people to get involved in the tourism profession. I work partly in tourism (as a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide) and partly in English Language Teaching (writing materials, running training courses overseas, and inspecting language schools in the UK for the British Council).
