Game on!

Season 5, Ep. 6

In the final episode of season 5, the hosts examine the unique role of pub games in British pub history and how events such as a quiz night or skittles alley can help transform some of the quietest pub nights into a popular evening, bringing people together and breaking down social barriers. 


They chat to award-winning freelance writer, audio maker and podcast consultant Emma Inch, and former pub quiz master Jane Peyton, an award-winning writer, public speaker and drinks expert.


This final episode shines a spotlight on Calderdale and Halifax CAMRA branch, which is preparing for the Calderdale Beer & Cider Festival taking place from 22-24 September.
