Keith Skipper's Norfolk Quiz Book
Keith Skipper's Norfolk Quiz Book
  • Description

Norfolk champion Keith Skipper teases and enlightens at the same time in this entertaining Norfolk Quiz Book. This is an ideal companion for inquisitive visitors and recent settlers making their way round the county - and a useful refresher for natives whose history, geography and just about everything else has gone a bit rusty.

"The general idea is to whet appetites to find out more" says Keith, whose passion for collecting thousands of snippets over his many years as writer and broadcaster shines out from these testing pages.

From local literature and dialect delights to pews and preachers and historical highlights, this Norfolk examination must bring encouraging results all round.

Keith Skipper is one of Norfolk's most outspoken defenders, writing and talking about his home county with undiluted humour and passion. He has written two dozen books, many of them celebrating the unique quality of Norfolk dialect and wit and has produced videos and CDs too. He was founder-chairman of Friends of Norfolk Dialect (FOND), set up in 1999 'to help get rid of those abominable Mummerzet tones in so many national television and radio productions.' He has led the Press Gang, a troupe of local entertainers, around village halls for over twenty years, and is continuously in demand as a speaker at all kinds of functions. He was recently appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of the County of Norfolk, an honour underlining his commitment to 'a wonderful place still happily on the Road to Nowhere.' Keith lives in Cromer on the North Norfolk coast with wife Diane and sons Danny and Robin - 'not too far from Chelsea on- Sea'.
