It's a Knockout coming to Guernsey


Promising to be "an absolute blast full of fun, water, foam and lots of laugh", Guernsey will be able to relive the classic British game show 'It's a Knockout' this summer thanks to the Friends of GROW.

The event is being hosted on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June, to support Guernsey's Rural Occupational Workshop in delivering its new, ambitious revamp, and is hoping to give people the chance to do something different over the summer.

Alongside a car raffle - with a Ford Fiesta ST as the top prize - which will be drawn at the event on the Sunday, all the games will be run by a professional UK 'It's a Knockout' company.

Anne-Marie Woodhead, from the Friends of GROW, said they wanted as many teams to sign up for the weekend as possible.

"Teams will be 10 people, and the entry fee is £250 a team. There is a minimum age of 14 but other than that, we are hoping as many people sign up as possible," she said.

"It will be all the inflatables and classics that people remember from the game show. The morning will be the dry events, and the afternoons will be the wet ones."

Alongside the tournament, the Friends Committee are hoping to turn the day in to a proper fair, celebrating what GROW do with local food stalls, rides and more. 

Ms Woodhead said they wanted to thank Trust Ford Garage for their support with the event and the car raffle, and reminded people they could buy the raffle tickets for £20 from both Trust Ford, and GROW itself. 

Nathalie Pike, a Director at GROW also on the Friends Committee, said they had tried to come up with something that could get the whole community involved.

According to her, the plans GROW has to redevelop its site will future proof it for another 35 years, or even more, and they needed the support of the island to achieve them.
