7.00pm THE BRENNTAG QUIZ NIGHT
The Brenntag Quiz night fast become a must do event! Brenntag started this back in 2013, and the event just keeps getting better. While there is strong competition during the night, there is no way for anyone to prepare for the questions, so everyone has a chance to win!
Everyone is invited, and we encourage you to make up a team and enjoy the fun. Drinks and food are served throughout the night.
Special thanks to Brenntag for sponsoring, organising and running this fantastic event!
