Abracadabacus and It’s Accrual World go head to head!

Morrisons' annual charity quiz for Polka Theatre is always a fantastic success and this year was no exception!  The team at WSM were so keen to get involved that we actually entered two groups into the competition, which definitely instigated some inter-company rivalry!

There were ten gruelling rounds as well as a marathon round, which was to be answered throughout the quiz, in which Mitchy dominated the political word scrambles and name the celeb rounds. I must be honest however, there were no other strong rounds for the WSM teams, especially in the 'name the song' round (we thought we had it in the bag, but no…).  I'm sticking to the excuse that it would have helped if quizmaster had sung the tunes, or picked songs after the 1970's!

School dinners were served and refreshments were provided throughout the evening to keep all of our brains ticking… not that it helped too much!  Both teams managed to score the exact same number of points and came fairly low in the results table!

The evening raised just under £1,800. Morrisons will top it up to £2,500 meaning that Polka will receive £5,000 as the Arts Council match the contribution on a pound for pound basis. What a fantastic result to compliment such a fun evening?

In the UK, Polka Theatre is one of the few venues dedicated to producing and presenting work for young audiences.  Over 100,000 children a year come to Polka and are inspired, stimulated and engaged by theatre, often for the first time. Polka strives to stir the emotions, spark the imagination and of course, entertain. It relies heavily on fundraising, especially recently due to the government cuts in arts funding!

In the meantime, we are going to start practising for next year!!
