It was a full house in The Legends Room at Swindon Town Football Club for our TV Game Show.  Over 120 people in 22 teams competed for over £500's worth of prizes and £2,000 was raised for the Olive Tree Cafe.  Typical of comments received was this: "The gameshow was brilliant. I had a couple of people in my team who had not been to a Rotary event before and they were very impressed by the presentation and they really got involved with the whole show. Great effort as always and a massive thank you for all of your hard work."

PRE-EVENT INFORMATION

Have you ever sat in front of the TV yelling in frustration at game show contestants who have the answers on the tip of their tongue but under the pressure of the occasion simply cannot spit their answers out?  If so and in the comfort of your armchair you  may well have felt that you could have done far better.

Well, here is your chance to prove yourself in our fun packed evening.  Form a team of 6 players  and compete against all the other teams of 6 present  as we play out your favourite TV game shows on the big screen – Games such as CATCHPHRASE,  NAME THAT TUNE,   A QUESTION OF SPORT and the all-time favourite, WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?

There will be spot prizes, incidental prizes, random prizes, runner up prizes and the overall winning team on  the evening will go on to play  GET THE ADS as featured on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway to win potentially 16 prizes including the treasure chest containing cash.
