6 September 2021
From an unmissable pub quiz in Portman Square Garden to a Halloween virtual tour, make sure you don’t miss out on our newly listed events!
It’s time to get your quiz team together for our Pub Quiz on Wednesday 15 September, 18.00 to 20.00. Hosted by Timberlina, the world’s number one environmentally friendly drag lady, our quiz will challenge you on an array of tantalising subjects, from the banal to the ridiculous. Get ready for mind bending specialisms, the obligatory musical round, and don’t forget to bring your colouring pencils as drawing will be included too. There will be a big tent to sit under if the sun isn’t out and there’ll be a bar with cocktails, soft drinks, wine and beer. Teams can be booked for up to six people. Tickets for this event are available on a pay-what-you-can donation basis, with all proceeds donated to North Paddington Food Bank. Prizes can be won courtesy of our partners Urban Food Fest: 1st prize a hamper, 2nd prize a round of cocktails and 3rd prize a round of beer. Register here.
