COMMENT: The Vigilant has two quizzes a week, this is the one with entertainment as the theme and there is a lot of that in the event and questions, but such is the array of the challenges that all tastes are catered for by Neil. The difficulty on the night we attended was the acoustics were poor and as a consequence many posers had to be repeated at the end of each round. This did not help the evening, but it also did not ruin it, as the posers came thick and fast, with well over a hundred with a packed venue on a cold Monday, in winter, during a recession. Well done the delightful Vigilant and the staff and management, but especially well done Neil.
