Fifth Annual Sheldon Bosley Quiz

Sheldon Bosley Quiz 2013

The fifth annual Sheldon Bosley Quiz night was held on Tuesday, 3rd December in the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon with approximately 150 guests including fellow professionals and clients who were entertained by the staff from both the Stratford and Shipston branches. Rev Green & Miss Scarlet

The evening was once again organised by Suzanne James, Sheldon Bosley’s Commercial Property Partner who had chosen Cluedo as a theme for the night; the game is played on a floor plan of a house and therefore seemed apt for a company of chartered surveyors.  Starting in the ‘Kitchen’, the first round was based on Food and Drink; the quizzers were then taken through various other rooms including the ‘Billiard Room’ where there were some taxing questions on Sport to the ‘Ballroom’ where they had to identify tracks or artists from a wide range of musical genres.

In keeping with the theme, the evening was compered by the Reverend Green and Miss Scarlet, more familiar to everyone as Raymond Smith and Suzanne James.  There was extremely close competition for the trophy but the victors were a team from Lodders Solicitors who just pipped a rival firm of solicitors in the final round.

 Winning Team

Apart from ensuring everyone had a fun and enjoyable evening, one of the Company’s aims in organising the event is to raise funds for a charity chosen by the staff, who this year decided upon Breakthrough Breast Cancer.   A total of £1,580 was raised from the entrance fee and the raffle; the latter proved very popular with some fantastic prizes donated by various local businesses which ensured everyone dug deep into their pockets.

The reputation of this annual event is growing and Sheldon Bosley is already looking forward to gathering everyone together next December.

Sheldon Bosley Sponsors Stratford Literary Festival

An Evening with Dan Snow at the Stratford Literary Fesitival

If you listen to Dan Snow, the history guy off the telly, for even a short time it is clear to most of us that there is an awful lot we don’t know about what makes us, and indeed many other nations, the people we are.  Sheldon Bosley were delighted to sponsor the Stratford Literary Festival event on evening of 13th November where Dan spoke to an audience of about 150 for a couple of hours and during that time we learned a great deal including interesting asides about his TV career, family life and an amazing array of historical world events.  He is a man passionate about his subject and his ability to communicate this enthusiasm to the audience is a gift, no doubt in part learned from his father, Peter – there was definitely something familiar about the arm waving.
