Welcome to this week`s
As mentioned it the Advance Notice [ see here ], this week`s White Room Quiz is slightly different.
To try and slightly lighten the mood in these dark and doomy days, this week`s White Room Quiz will be a themed one - with the usual EIGHT questions - but each question, in some way, connected to the theme of "fun", "comedy", and "humour".
The questions have been posted earlier than usual to give everyone as long as possible to think about the answers.
PLEASE NOTE AMENDED TIMES BELOW FOR SENDING YOUR PM'S WITH ANSWERS
The White Room Quiz is open to all members
I hope our regular quizzers
and any member, who has taken part in the past or has never taken part, and new members
will join in with this week`s White Room Quiz.
THIS WEEK`S EIGHT QUESTIONS
