Oxfam Literary Quiz - HEART Centre

This specially-themed monthly quiz, set and delivered with great panache by Mike Bird, Heart Centre manager, was a delightful test of Headingley's amassed brains.  Pictures of book covers – no title or author – was one challenging round. An Only Connect wall was fiendishly difficult and got the little grey cells beloved of Hercule Poirot going into overdrive.  Literary questions on the weather, dates in March and, of course, Endings – this year's LitFest theme – were also a cause of collective searching of the memory banks.

A most enjoyable evening of competitive quizzing, social chat in the packed Assembly cafe and some great raffle prizes.  Do go to them on a regular basis – every third Wednesday of the month.

Well organised, challenging quiz, fun and informative, literary heaven!

I enjoyed the occasion enormously. Good fun and sociable and the samosas were tasty.

Well organised and attended. Enjoyable evening.

It was the first time that I have taken I part with Headingley LitFest and I found it quite hard. A very good evening though generally.

Great fun quiz.

Good fun but it could be slicker, with better scoring instructions.

Quite difficult!

Enjoyable but the only connect question was too difficult.

Great fun and good to raise so much money.

A very stimulating quiz.

Good fun!

Great fun, thanks.

The first time I've been  to the Oxfam Quiz. I will do so again. All good clean heterosexual fun.

The most boring quiz I have ever been to in my life!! Even though we scored 74 out of 80! Questions were too obscure and difficult.
