The Week Was Complete…
And Just like that, with Admiralty, Anglers, Birdcage, Cock & Bull, Distillers and the GNRT already going well, the Hercules came calling in Lambeth North looking for a brand new Monday Night Quiz. Sadly, this pub just wasn’t quite the fit we needed, so after just a month upstairs in the Carousel room, the Quiz has now been put on a break. It may return in the Autumn, we shall see! But forgetting the negative, a positive thing was for a while, I was proud to say that from one humble Hornsey Quiz back in 2017, just over 2 years later, and 7 Quizzes in 5 Days meant I was in Seventh Heaven!
THE GNRT: TWO GOOD TWO BE TRUE!
The Great Northern Railway Tavern has been my bread and butter. It is where it all began again for me back in 2017 and is consistently one of the busiest Quizzes I host. On Wednesday 1st May, 4 weeks after welcoming 84 Players for the 100th Quiz, we had 52 Players for our 104th Quiz, which spookily gave the winning team - Johnny Big Liathroidi £104!! Where can we go from here? Well, with new teams from the ever growing local area coming in added to the many regulars who have been coming since the beginning. We are in good shape! Bring on the next 2 years in Hornsey!TON UP!
On Wednesday April 3rd, a real landmark occasion. Back in April 2017, After a year out from Quiz Hosting, I was unsure where my life was going professionally, but thanks to the Hornsey Quiz, little did I know, that this Quiz would be the foundation for what is now my own business spanning over 6 pubs a week, multiple corporates, weddings, charities and quizzes for people like the Aussie Rugby Team! I owe a lot of it down to this pub, so in May we will celebrate the 2nd birthday, but in April, it was time to celebrate reaching 100 quizzes! The Quiz did not disappoint as a whopping 84 Players turned up over 19 teams taking over the entire pub. What an atmosphere. What a Quiz Night. Here is to the next 100
The Return of the Anglers
It is BACK! Get yourself back to the riverside of Teddington by the lock for the fantastic Tuesday Night Pub Quiz. We just took a break whilst a) it was refurbished and b) it was cold, dark and wet! So with the sunshine back, the temperatures rising, we have many plans lined up, and hopefully some more big garden Quizzes. Playdoh, Prizes, and much more. The first 40 Quizzes boasted high turnouts of up to 90 players, so bring it on. May 28th, we go again! So get your down to the brand new pub for the Best Quiz in the South West! I went to a launch party in early May and the pub looks incredible. One definitely not to be missed!

tHE aDMIRALTY QUIZ CELEBRATED ITS first birthday in october last year. a quiz originally only given a trail of about 8 weeks is now well past 80 quizzes and has marched into the new year with more fun, games, free booze & doughnuts down in the cosy gun deck!
THE SEVENTH DISTILLERS JACKPOT has been WON! And it didn’t take long at all! After just 1 jar had been opened, the Growlers again overcame the previous jackpot winners by just a few points and went for Jar Number 9 which turned out to be money! £240 For them to add to the £352 & £280 they had won a few jackpots ago! This means that we start all over again on September 1st, but if the crowds keep coming, it shouldn’t take long to reach big money again!
5 bake off themed quizzes, 5 battenberg challenges, this guy was the overall winner chowing down on his marzipan wedge in just 5.5 seconds. teddington’s got talent!!!
In the same week as the aussie rugby team quiz, i had the pleasure of hosting my second ever wedding quiz (eric & russell’s being the first back in 2016) as MR AND MRS DAVIES TIED THE KNOT AND THEN, EVEN MORE EXCITINGLY, WON THE QUIZ! ALTHOUGH, THE QUESTIONS WERE ALL ABOUT THEM…SO…! CONGRATS GUYS!
