A SHROVETIDE-themed quiz goes on sale tomorrow to fund a Shrovetide film evening in January.

Quiz sheets, costing £1, and including a spot the deliberate mistake competition, can be bought from Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide Committee members, players, and businesses including Natural Choice, Ashbourne Tourist Information and pubs.

First prize for the most correct answers on the quiz is two tickets to the Shrovetide dinner and the deliberate mistake competition, which will be drawn on the day of the film showing, has a £10 prize.

The film screening, which has been organised by the Shrovetide Players Committee in association with the Media Archive for Central England, will take place on Friday, January 25 at the Empire Ballroom.

It will feature never-before-seen footage of the game dating from the 1920s up to the late 1980s in short video clips.

Admission for adults will be £5 and funds raised will fund future games.

Quiz sheets must be completed and returned, to the News Telegraph office at 6, Market Place, by Friday, January 18.
