Beckenham & Bromley Myn Zoom Pub Evening
Wed 10 Aug 2022 - 20:00 to 23:00

We hold two pub evenings a month on the first and third Wednesdays, with all the other Wednesdays being Zoom pub evenings.

The quiz uses five themes chosen by one of our members, with both the themes and the theme organiser being different for each month, but with all members each asking one question per theme on each of the themes.

This means that tonight is a standard Zoom pub evening.

Contact Roland in advance, preferably by e-mail, so that he can send you a link to click on at the start of the meeting. Please note the different arrangements for the first and third Wednesdays of the month.
