Show Biz Quiz 2024

The very popular TATS annual showbiz quiz took place in Turvey Village Hall on 26th January.


Eleven teams fought a fierce contest



But someone had to win… and this year it was ‘The Clangers’ (Turvey bellringers). Many congratulations to them.


It takes a lot of work to stage these evenings, so many thanks to our quiz masters, David and John, and to the rest of the TATS team who supported in a variety of roles, this time off stage!



We even got the chance for the whole hall to sing a special 79th happy birthday to our wonderful ex chairman Rosemary, who also captained her team, ‘Rosemary’s Babies’, to the ‘runners up’ spot in the contest.



Finally… We would like to thank all our competitors for making the effort to support us and making it so enjoyable, and we look forward to seeing you all again at our future shows and events.

The TATS 2023 AGM took place on Monday 4th December at Turvey Village Hall at 1930.

A great time was had by all and following the formal side of the meeting a very good attendance enjoyed mulled wine, soft drinks, mince pies and off course the obligatory catch up conversations.

A special mention to Joint Chairman Rosemary Gentry, who after many years of sterling service stood down from the new Committee and in recognition of her significant contributions to the society over the years, was awarded an honorary membership.
