Not much happening at the Carrot over the summer, but what there is will be pretty good.
TASTINGS – Although GIN 2 (14 July, £20) is sold out again, we will look at having a 3rd event at the end of the summer if there is interest – possibly on Fri 1 September – so email / facebook / text / drop-in with your entreaties for another go.
POP QUIZ – with apologies to Jan for standing her up, or sitting her down on the front step, We can now confirm the long awaited SIZZLING SOUNDS of SUMMER pop Quiz on Fri 21 July. – Paul’s Pop Quiz returns, and Paul is back in the saddle for a bit of step into summer sounds and sincerity !!
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE GOOD AT POP QUIZZES to thoroughly enjoy this evening of entertainment with the ruffle shirted purple suited one. Jackpot will be about £70 – can you scoop it with three lucky guesses?
Food from 7.30 quiz starts at 8pm. YOU WILL NEED TO BOOK, or at least check in, if you haven’t already as space is limited for this premium event.
3 quizzes combined into one, Giving you an evening you’ll find hard to forget – or remember – pop enthusiasts beware THIS QUIZ WILL MESS YOU UP . £9.00pp with lovely food. – £4.50pp without food
GOLF -The following day (Saturday 22nd) we have golf at Hollingbury in the DOGS Open (And Exposed), but if you can’t make that we follow it up quite quickly with a return visit to Haywards Heath on Friday 4 August (3pm for a 4pm start). Both of these events cost a measly £30 and include food beforehand.
Football – Are you old? are your friends old or even older? This year we implement the brain child of Micheal Chapman and have our first Elders 8 a side tournament on Saturday 7 October. Believe it or not we are almost at team capacity so if you want to get a team in let us know PDQ. All players MUST be 40 or over, with 2 over 50’s in the mix as well. All the action (inertia?) takes place at Downlands 3 G pitch in the afternoon. ID will be checked (with whatever failing eyesight we have left).
Comedy – SO it would be too easy to just have a football tournament, or just comedy, so we have combined the two and the next big bash HA HA HAssocks takes place at Adastra Hall on Saturday 7 October, a shortish while after the football. ..and then we’ll have another one on Fri 10 November just to keep you on your toes. Tickets and fuller information on this will be available by the end of July, and you can even go double bubble and get two tickets ( 7 October & 10 November) for £20.
The Purple Carrot itself will be closed from the end of July and most of August on a general day to day basis as we revamp a few things here and there, so perhaps give us a ring (01273 841296) or m: firstname.lastname@example.org to check we are in residence. Also do look out for the odd PC inspired event at JJ’s cafe…it could become a feature
