In Buckingham, Town and Gown prepare for the annual brain’s competition

See if Town can keep its advantage following their victory from last year.

On November 4, Buckingham will host its annual Town and Gown charity quiz contest.

Once more, intrepid competitors from the town and the University of Buckingham will compete in this year’s competition.

An fascinating evening is guaranteed thanks to questions crafted by local brainiac Alan Heath, who won TV’s Mastermind in 2016 with Thunderbirds as his specialty, and quizmaster Buckingham MP Greg Smith.

Town leads Gown by three wins to two after taking the previous year’s competition, so there is still much to play for.

The enjoyable evening, which begins at 7 p.m. in The Royal Latin School’s Discovery Center, is sponsored in support of BACAB, a community organisation that raises money for Citizens Advice Bureau services in Buckingham, Winslow, and the surrounding area. Behind all the pleasure is a serious goal—we’re raising money for our Citizens Advice Bureau, according to BACAB head Jane Mordue.

“Your CAB needs your assistance as the phones are ringing nonstop from concerned locals who are dealing with increased energy costs, mortgage payments, and even possible homelessness.

“The CAB wants to assist more people and needs to answer more calls. Its assistance will be essential for keeping people safe and getting through the winter because benefits are already slipping behind inflation and the winter will be harsh.

Tickets cost £20 each and are available at the Old Gaol’s tourist information office or on Eventbrite.

The Royal Latin School and the Lillingstone Trust were praised by the organisers for letting them utilise their premises.
