14.00 Junior Talent Show – Butes Marquee




18.00 Family Quiz Night – Butes Marquee

Want to spin the Wheel of Fortune (or even just The Wheel)? Do you want your Win to be Limitless? Do you really Want to be a Millionaire? Then come down to the Butes Marquee with your family and friends to put your quizzical brains to the test in this fun filled evening. Teams should be 6-8 in number, to be fair, so get thinking of a team name and also which round you may play your Joker on to score double points. Rounds will be based on previous Alderney Week themes, so we’ve got Two of a Kind, Animal Magic and Around the World….AND as it worked so well last year, we’ll have an Audio/Music round too. And if that’s not enough, there’s the return of the devious final Wipeout round (“where anything can change…”)!. Rest assured, they’ll be questions for all ages on the night, plus some spot prizes along the way. As this event is always very popular, best get there early to get a table…or feel free to bring your own chairs / tables if you wish (in true Alderney Week style!). Warm clothing is advisable too, just in case.
