Well there's no doubt that an evening event pulls in the crowds. We were packed tonight with hundreds of people watching from the back and the sides. It was an exciting night with a ten scored on the joker round, a karate demonstration and a new winning team. That winning team was Finham Park School and Kirsty, Emily, Harry and Scott are off to the final! In second place was Blue Coat 1 and in third place was last year's winning school Kenilworth. Our authors - Mark Robson and Irfan Masters plus a Scholastic rep out scored the winning team and they also awarded the book prizes which were all review or award copies kindly donated by the organiser Joy Court.
Thanks to all those people who supported the teams tonight you made it a real festival of reading.
