On 27th March 2014 we will be holding a charity race night, starting at 8pm, in support of “ a way with pain“, a charity providing support for people suffering with chronic pain. It is estimated that around 1 in 7 of the UK population live with this condition.
The fun starts at 8pm and horses are available to ‘buy’ now. Horses cost £3 each and you can ‘own’ as many horses in as many races as you like. Winning horses will bag their owners a £10 prize.
Please come along and support this worthwhile cause.Read more about “a way with pain“.
If you have some experience of bar work (and even if you haven’t) and would like to work here at the Malt Shovel Tavern we would be pleased to hear from you. Why not give us a call to discuss the options. We look forward to hearing from you.
Our general knowledge quiz night takes place on the first Thursday each month. See the upcoming events panel for the dates.
Quiz nights start at 8pm. Entry is £1 per person and the maximum team size is 8 players.
Traditional meat and vegetarian Cornish pasties are available at all quizzes.
