Osmington Village Hall hosts Quiz Royale to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee


To mark the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's ascension to the throne, Osmington Village Hall has paid tribute by hosting a special quiz night.


Teams gathered to answer 40 questions about our longest serving monarch, and also enjoy a traditional British fish & chip supper.


The hall was decked out with union flags and bunting, and there was even a member of the Queen's Guard on the door to welcome visitors.


There was a special display featuring photos and stories from the Queen's 70 year reign, and even a model of Buckingham Palace.



Quizmaster for the evening was Village Hall trustee Jeff Little OBE, who says, "The 6th of February is the actual day upon which Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth, and although there are some great celebrations planned in June, we thought it was right to mark the day today.


"For a Sunday evening, the turnout is fantastic, especially because it's a bit wild and windy outside. We've got the National Anthem, so we stood up and saluted that, and then got on with the quiz where the winning team picked up a very appropriate £70 prize."
