Nocturnal Chalice Champion 2016 Jamie Burgan

June 29, 2016

Well done to Jamie Burgan for his Fabulous entry in the Nocturnal teacake annual Drinking Chalice Competition. He called in the pet shop on his way home from work and bought a mouses drinking bottle.

That’s the kind of effort that get’s you the win. The judging was decided by a clapometer where the sound level of clapping between first second and third was staggeringly varying and there was no doubt at all that Jamie was the clear winner. Next year there will be no Plastic cups for the lame people that don’t bother, so roll on next year, cheers Bren

The Summer Solstice is just around the corner which means it’s the time of year when we head out into our beloved Peak District by night to sample the sights, smells and long shadows cast by the almost midnight sun. There was talk of calling in at The Barrel for a pint but we’ll see how we’re going for time after the drinking chalice challenge around the Eyam stocks. The Norfolk Arms has been booked as usual and I’m going to do my best to get the triangle sandwiches back on silver platters but can’t promise.


Remember to bring your lights and plenty of beer vouchers.

RSVP via e-mail to so I can give the pub an idea of how many to expect.
