The Town team narrowly defeated the Gown team 56-55 in an exciting battle of brains watched by a large audience at the Royal Latin School’s Discovery Centre last Friday.

This year’s BBC Mastermind, Buckingham resident Alan Heath, who together with his wife Heather set the questions, said: “I was impressed by both teams, with their level of knowledge and the spirit in which the game was played.

“The close result added to the spectacle but it showed that the teams were evenly matched and either could have won.”

The event raised well over £2,000 of valuable funding for Citizens Advice and there is already talk of a re-match in 2017.
