LRA's 2020 Christmas Quiz


21 November 2020
LRA's Christmas Quiz
Even in this strange and sad year, we’re happy to bring you the usual Christmas quiz.

This year the theme is films – almost all of them well known, and certainly likely to have been on TV, as well as at the cinema. It’s a bit longer than usual, but with lockdowns and restrictions in some form, we thought you may have a bit more time on your hands.


There is a prize of a book token or fizz for the first correct answers out of the hat. Answers to lesandsueharris@aol.com by January 5th please. Have a good Christmas everyone, whatever form it takes.

Here's printer friendly version as well.
