Do you know the meaning of zobo, parisant, splaw or yemsel? Perhaps you are of an age to remember the 1960s and the BBC programme Call my Bluff . . . with Frank Muir, Patrick Campbell, Arthur Marshall, and a host of other celebrities, of the time, joining their teams – not forgetting the inimitable Robert Robinson as the ‘referee/host’? Or you might have seen later versions between 1997 and 2005? The idea of the programme was that two teams of three would take it in turns to provide three definitions of an obscure word, only one of which was correct – the other two being ‘bluffs’. The opposing team then had to guess the correct definition.
In a fit of nostalgia and a desire to have a fun evening to raise money, the Belstone Friends of the Children’s Hospice South West are putting on their own version of Call my Bluff, in Belstone Village Hall on Saturday 17th November at 7.30pm, with a finger buffet served at your table during the interval and a licensed bar throughout the evening.
In our version of the programme, there will be just one team of three and a ‘referee/host’ (made up of notable members of the Belstone Players!) and you, the audience, will be invited to vote for the person you think has given the most likely definition. You can confer with other members of your table and there will be small rewards for the successful guessers.
So, join us for what promises to be an entertaining and humorous evening – bar opens at 7.00pm, to help start it with a swing. Oh . . . one word of warning . . . any mobile phones seen, will be confiscated and locked in our little black box for the duration of the evening!
Tickets £10 to include supper, available from Edwina on 01837 840332 email@example.com Also on sale at Thursday Community Café or by asking any of the CHSW Friends.
Look forward to seeing you on 17th November!
