1st Prize £30 & Radstock Reminisces Book, 2nd Prize £20, 3rd Prize £10, 4th Prize Annual Family Museum Ticket.  Plus, Runner-up Prizes.  

Radstock Museum usually holds its annual pre-Christmas fund-raising quiz night at Radstock Working Men’s Club, which always supports the Museum so generously. As this is not possible this year, our volunteers have organised a virtual Winter Quiz that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home and in your own time over the coming weeks.

The quiz has several rounds including lots of local history and knowledge questions some of which will require a bit of digging around to find the right answers that search engines can’t necessarily help you with!

Thatcher and Hallam Solicitors have generously sponsored the quiz prizes which include 1st Prize £30 and “Radstock Reminisces”, a beautiful large local history book full of old photos and fascinating facts and information (if you already have this book – another can be chosen from the Museum shop), 2nd Prize £20, 3rd Prize £10, 4th Prize an annual family ticket to the Museum, plus several more runner-up prizes.
