Royston District Scouts are holding a quiz night to raise money for the World Scout Jamboree 2023 in South Korea.

The quiz will take place at Coombes Community Centre on Saturday, March 11, at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Six scouts and explorers from Royston, aged between 14 and 17, have been selected to join the UK contingent of the Scout Jamboree, along with three young leaders aged 18 and 19 and three other leaders.

The scouts have previously held several events to raise money for their trip. In September last year they set up an open air cinema in the town, showing 'Back to the Future', and they have also held a sausage sizzle and set up a board games café.


Teams of up to eight people are welcome at the quiz. Attendance costs £12 per person, and includes hot food and the online booking fee. There will also be a bar and a raffle.

The World Scout Jamboree will be held in August in Saemangeum, and more than 40,000 scouts from around the world are expected to attend.

Royston District Scouts are aiming to raise £41,500 in total to fund their trip.
