Get your thinking cap on.

CONVENTIONAL PUB QUIZZES cannot take place right now, as we all know. 

But that doesn’t mean we can’t still have one. 

We have five rounds of five questions each – on geography, sports, film, history and then some general knowledge. 

You could even incorporate it into your Facetime/Zoom/Houseparty activities tonight by sharing the screen.

But, in the grand tradition of pub quizzes everywhere, no cheating.

Let’s go.
