British Open / Bury Grand Prix - Sat 5 December 2015

Postby Chris » Wed Nov 18, 2015 4:00 pm

Saturday 5th December sees us make our first visit to Bury in Greater Manchester for the 2015 running of the British Open Grand Prix. This is definitely one to look forward to, Andrew Teale having secured us a cracking venue! And for this event we will be joined by quizzers in Edinburgh and overseas for the individual quiz, expected participants including Belgium, Croatia, Norway, Romania, and Singapore.

Our venue is the newly re-developed Minden Suite at the Fusilier Museum in the town centre. Entry to the Grand Prix also secures you free access to this splendid regimental museum (a saving of £4.95), dedicated to one of the more historic and colourful units of the British Army, a regiment whose antecedents were formed in the 17th century and who took part in numerous campaigns, including the glorious victory at Minden (1759), Spion Kop in the 2nd Boer War, and famously winning ‘Six VCs before Breakfast’ at Gallipoli.

Please note the Museum opens at 10.00 am for those wishing to make the most of the day!

Venue
Minden Suite, Fusileer Museum
Moss Street

While not at all mandatory, it will greatly assist us if you could make payment prior to the event via PayPal. You don't need to even have a PayPal account to make a payment. Just visit the paypal.co.uk website and click on the "send money" button. The address to send it to (when asked for our e-mail address) is payments@quizzing.co.uk. Thanks!


Getting to the venue
The Fusilier Museum is right in the heart of Bury town centre a short walk from its Bus and Metro Interchange. The Metro station is at the northern end of the line which runs through Victoria and Piccadilly Railway stations in central Manchester and extends as far south as Altrincham, for anyone planning to fly into Manchester!

For those of you coming by car, Bury is located where the A56 and A58 roads cross one another. Bury is well connected to the motorway network, with access from the M60 Manchester ring road (5 miles south at Junction 17 Prestwich/Whitefield) or the much nearer Junction 2 of the M66, a motorway that runs north from the junction of the M60/M62 motorways, up past the east side of Bury and on to Edenfield.
