Future events

February 2019

Sunday 24th February, 8.30pm - 10.30pm

Pub Quiz in Headington at The Butcher's Arms, 5 Wilberforce St, Oxford OX3 7AN, UK (map)

David Salisbury is holding a series of Pub Quizzes where Parkinson's-related questions replace some of the other questions. Players will have to "cheat" to answer the PD questions. Asking the players to research the answers is an effective way of increasing their awareness of PD. The awareness level is reinforced by a short speech/Q&A.

Registration for the quiz begins at 8.30pm, but it's popular so arrive early to settle in at a good table!

Donations collected are welcome.

This event is listed on the pub's website www.butchersarmsheadington.co.uk/events.
