Help the Merry Monk save the Old King's Head
The Merry Monk has been enlisted to help save the Old King's Head. The Old King's Head is a historic building in Kirton in need of preserving and the Merry Monk is the village pub ready to welcome all those who enjoy a quiz.
The "Celebrate Kirton Christmas Quiz" will take place on Friday, December 1, from 7pm to help raise funds for the campaign to bring the Old King's head back into productive use.
There will be Christmas, Kirton and Lincolnshire-specific questions, hearty bowls of chilli to be enjoyed with rice or chips, homemade mince pies, a hamper prize of local and festive foods and a raffle with more chances to win.
Tickets are £10 each, including quiz entry and food. Teams of up to six. Organisers will help individuals and couples form teams on the night, or book five places and get your final team member goes for free.
The Old Kings Head is a nationally-important Tudor coaching inn which is in desperate need of repair and a new use. Local businesses are generously donating prizes for the hamper and raffle.
