Spelling Bee for Grown-Ups

Do you love to spell? Come along to our spelling bee for grown-ups, facilitated by Margaret Linley (self-professed Best Speller on the Planet), and test your skills against other excellent spellers or join the audience. 

"Margaret Linley is quite frankly THE best speller on the planet,  As THE best speller on the planet, she can’t remember a single time she was hauled in front of the sub-editors for sloppy spelling: in fact she can only recall effusive praise for her ‘clean copy’. She is SO tremendous at spelling, she’s expecting MENSA to come calling. And she’s also sure if spelling should ever become an Olympic event, it will  be GOLD, GOLD, GOLD all the way for her."

Margaret is Big Word of Mouth storyteller and MC, Moth Grand Slammer, comic, award-winning travel writer, restaurant judge, former News Corp journalist and radio host. Come along to this fun, informative and hilarious event and put your challenge for GOLD to Margaret!
