Femmes & Facts Quiz Night
March 6, 2014

Held at the Farrell Centre, Friend’s School, Hobart to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Our quiz event was very loosely formatted upon ABC’s Spicks and Specks, although our event was an Amazing, Bolshy and Creative (ABC) of Femmes & Facts. Whilst the two panels competed against each other throughout the event, it incorporated numerous opportunities for audience participation and opportunity to win generously donated prizes.

Louise Saunders, Tracey Wing, Anna Reynolds, Julie Marsaban, Debbie Dunn and Ella Haddad, became our two panels of contestants with Robin Banks as our engaging and lawful adjudicator throughout the evening’s entertainment. Emma Bennison and Georgina O’Rouke lent their beautiful voices for the Sing a Book section of the event.
