Little Adoption Shop Quiz Night at the Moel Siabod Cafe

Another chance to attend one of Mike Lees’ highly enjoyable & funny Quiz Night’s at the Siabod cafe. This one is in aid of the Little Adoption Shop & organised by our good friend Hazel Robbins so we hope you will be able to attend & have a great night out in Capel Curig. There will also be a Raffle.

Some more about this good cause:-

The Little Adoption Shop (LAS) was founded in 2011, it is a Beizing-based Dog rescue & adoption organisation.

In the last 6 years it has rescued & provided shelter to more than a thousand dogs including many who’s fate would have gone to the meat trade & others who have been trapped or exposures to many other dangers. LAS concentrate on saving the sickest/most difficult dogs first irrespective that these are often the most costly cases to cure.

Chris Barden who runs LAS in Dion & Goby’s story: In 2016 Dion Leonard, an altramarathon runner, was followed by a little stray dog (later named Gobi) whilst running a 155 mile race across (yes you’ve guessed it) the Gobi Desert. Dion decided to reward his new follower by bringing her back to the UK but whilst in quarantine in Urumqi she went missing in a city of 3 million people. Chris & his team were instrumental in finding Gobi, this turned into a bestseller ‘Finding Gobi’ & is now being developed into a film by 20th Century Fox!

LAS are widely known in China, have a don’t give up & no kill policy & are an non-government organisation so totally reliant on donations.

Please join with Hazel, Mike  & ourselves to help raise some funds to allow Chris & his team to continue helping dogs in a country where they clearly need that help.

If you wish to donate but cannot attend the quiz you can do so by either contacting Hazel at or by visiting Little Adoption Shop Go Fund Me page

Entry to the quiz is £2.00 minimum per person but of course we’d be delighted if you give more.

Last orders for those wanting hot food will be 7:00 pm, extended bar until 11:00 pm.

End: October 20, 2018 11:00 pm

Doug Scott CBE Presentation ‘The Hard Road to Everest’ with Paul ‘tut’ Braithwaite at the Siabod Cafe

We are delighted to welcome Doug Scott CBE back to the Cafe again this Autumn. Doug will be presenting ‘The Hard Road to Everest’ covering part 1 of his Autobiography ‘Up And About’ which was published in 2016 a book which I read avidly & was seriously marked by his recollection of detail & candid telling of his motivations, experiences & personal relationships with those he came into contact with, I was left itching for the second volume to come along soon. The presentation will cover Doug’s formative years up to & including his ascent of Everest (the hard way) in 1977 with Dougal Haston. We are also delighted to welcome back Paul Braithwaite who will add contributions within the presentation itself to help offer further insight into some of the experiences they shared.

During the evening Doug will be selling signed copies of the book together with copies of his latest book ‘The Ogre’, another riveting read which almost sadly for me has delayed the publishing of the 2nd Volume of his Autobiography. He will also have other Nepalese artefacts available for sale too.

The last two years we have sold out so to be sure of a seat please book early, payment is required in advance & as ever all proceeds from our ticket sales will be going to Doug’s charity Community Action Nepal. Tickets are also available through Eventbrite with a small additional booking fee applicable.

Please note that for those seeking food last hot food orders will be 18:00, drinks license extended until 10:00 pm.
