This is an annual event, organised by the Lambethans’ Society and
held at Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton. It was held this year on
October 25. Martin Heath turned up in a vaguely supporting role,
suggested politely that he didn’t like participating in quizzes and
that he was there only as a spectator. He was soon cajoled into
the New Leaf team, consisting, up until that point, of husband
and wife, Vinnie and Helen O’Connell. Thanks mostly to Helen’s
impressively broad knowledge of the arts, New Leaf came in close
behind the winners (Streatham Society).
