The annual Upper Crossgare Pipe Band Christmas Quiz will take place at the local Orange Hall on Friday 29th December 2017 at 8.00pm. This traditional event has been running for many years and whilst it is essentially a great fun night with lots of laughs it is still a very competitive quiz night. So if you are looking for a diversion from the usual overeating and procession of television repeats why not come along and pit your wits in the battle to be the 2017 champions.
