On Thursday 9th March Reigate Manor played host to a curry and quiz night to raise funds for the Christmas lights put on by The Reigate Business Guild. The evening was extremely well attended with quiz goers joining in from many of Reigate’s local businesses including teams from Run Reigate, Jellyfish, Real Foods, Lewis Charles, Willows, Gerrard’s and many more. The ballroom at Reigate Manor was packed with 120 guests enjoying a curry in between 8 rounds of a fairly challenging quiz. The quiz was put together by the team at Reigate Manor however one attendee assumed a professional quiz company had been involved as it was such a good evening!
