A fun evening to be had at our Beetle Drive. Bring a team or come on your own. £5 entrance fee includes light refreshments in the interval. Bar and Tombola too!

When played at social occasions the drawing game of "Beetle" is known as a Beetle Drive, in which many rounds of Beetle are played. The players are often in groups of four with communal dice, and the first player to complete their beetle shouts out "Beetle!", stopping the play of all the groups. Then the winner of each particular group (the player with the most complete beetle in that group) moves around a circle of tables to the right (clockwise), and the loser (the player with the least complete beetle) to the left (anti-clockwise) - or sits still. The ultimate winner is usually either the one who has drawn the most complete beetles, or the one who has drawn the most parts in total. Such rules may differ depending on the social occasion and setup.
