On a dark, spooky, Halloween evening a team of six Birkett Long ghouls (Jo McKenna, Bradley Powell, Jess Elwell, Ella Johnson, Paul Chilver and Paul’s girlfriend Harriette Naylor) attempted to uphold our recent quiz success at the Mercury Rising Project Halloween Quiz.

Our first round was a picture round of ‘Scary Films’ and thanks to our combined knowledge of horror films, we scored an impressive 20 out of 20. A strong start! We continued in this way for the rest of the evening mainly thanks to Paul and Bradley, the Quiz Kings, Ella’s expertise in Beatrix Potter, Jo’s quick recognition of Halloween themed songs and my knowledge of Harry Potter creatures. 

In the end we finished in first place out of 16 teams(!) and left feeling very happy with our winners prizes. More importantly, the event raised £750 for the Mercury Rising Campaign which will go towards the extension and refurbishment of the Mercury Theatre in Colchester. 

On to the next one!
