A quintessentially British activity, the pub quiz has been popular for over 40 years in the UK; with more than 22.000 of them being held regularly every week! What better way to spend an ordinary weeknight than in the midst of a pub full of enthusiasm at the thought of winning a bottle of wine or a bit of money?
Ye Old Crow is a charming little pub that claims to have been built in 1854, so it boasts plenty of history, despite having undergone a 21st century makeover, which includes twinkling chandeliers, wooden floors, and – best of all! – a free jukebox! It has an intimate, cozy atmosphere; ideal to enjoy the live Jazz music that takes place every other Thursday.
On the last Monday of every month, the place to be is at a table, with a pint of beer and surrounded by friends, about to start the pub quiz! Stroll down to get seats early, make teams, decide what you’ll be called and prepare your pencils and quiz papers. The person asking the questions is known as the quizmaster and will be the same person that marks the team’s answers and announces the winner.
And what will the questions be about, you ask; well, usually there’s a general knowledge round, which covers history, geography and science and nature; a sports and entertainment round, and true or false questions. Some quiz’s also play “Who am I?”, a round in which the quizmaster reads out the clues to the identity of a famous person; or a music round, when excerpts of a song sound and the team has to guess the band and the song. Finally the prizes are given out, awarded to the team with the highest score. Normally, they are a case of beer or money to spend on drinks, vouchers to go to the cinema or novelty gifts like chocolate or cheap toys.
It’s all about gathering a group of like-minded friends and a couple of pitchers and spending a perfectly blissful Monday night (and discovering previously unknown penchants for 80’s music or geography).
Be there at 7:30pm, and have the time of your life for just 1 pound entry!
