    A change of scene for the Geese and Fountain Monthly Mondays Pub Quiz as we welcome back your host and quizmaster Carl Woods – we’re heading outside for a socially distanced quiz in the Beer Garden.
    It’s not that the questions are difficult, but the answers are a real struggle. This month there’s a special theme, as the quiz is all part of our Birthday Weekend, to celebrate five years of the Geese and Fountain.
    Book tables early if you want to eat while you’re quizzing. We’ll set up the PA so all our outside tables can hear the questions.

The Vale of Belvoir is a vibrant and lively area with a wealth of events ranging from brilliantly organised sporting events to food fayres and long-established music festivals. We spend a lot of time searching for events in Melton Mowbray and the surrounding villages and receive many contributions from the community and event organisers. If you have an event in Melton Mowbray or the surrounding area that you know about or are involved in running, please let us know and we’ll include it. There’s no charge for this and we are happy to support local events.

Please contact us if you would like to include anything on the events page.

As well as the events happening in Newark, Melton & Grantham, the busier towns of Nottingham, Leicester and Derby are also within an easy drive. Check our Facebook & Twitter pages for the very latest news.

Make sure you also check out the list of the area’s main attractions listed here. From beautiful National Trust properties to the thrill of skydiving centres, there really is something for everyone. There’s also a wealth of great quality local accommodation if you’re planning a longer stay.
