  • Saint Sebastian's Primary School Quiz Friday 27th April starts at 7:30 for a 7:45pm start. Tickets are £12.50 per person and include a fish and chip supper. A cash bar will also be available.  We can place you in a team or you can organise your own (roughly 6 per table). This is a really fun night for those who have never attended and it raises much needed funds for the school who really rely on these events!  There is a booking form and the PTA will also be selling tickets after school next week.
