  • Harry Potter Quiz

    October 15, 2019
    Dust off your robes, sellotape your wand, cage your owl, and enter the magical world for just one night.

    Prove your knowledge of the Potterverse across six quiz rounds designed to weed out the Hufflepuffs from the Ravenclaws. Binge watch the films and prepare for the picture round and test your abilities as an auror… think you could spot a death eater amongst the Harry Potter cast? And, if like a true Gryffindor you want to push yourself to the limit, take on series of punishing tasks for extra house points. Don’t worry… we’ve left the dragons in Romania with Charlie Weasley.

    Wizardry is so much more than a Harry Potter quiz. So step into our universe and expect the unexpected. Choose your quiz according to your strengths. Or become a prefect and attend all four!

    Disclaimer: this quiz is a celebration of the entire Potterverse. Quiz questions will cover the Harry Potter books and films, as well as some on Fantastic Beasts. But that won’t phase a true Potter fan… right?

  • Sounds Familiar’s Christmas Party/Quiz

    October 9, 2019
    Sounds Familiar Music Quiz is the biggest, best and most raucous music quiz in the UK, with sell-out events each week. Beware serious quizzers, SFMQ is as far from your usual pub quiz as you can possibly get. Think of Sounds Familiar as more of a party disguised as a quiz.

  • The Football Quiz

    October 9, 2019
    The finest football quiz in the capital returns to The Old Queen’s Head.

    Whether you consider yourself the Pep or Paul Lambert of the niche & niggly world of football trivia, an abundance of hefty two footed questions, Who Am I? rounds, exclusive content and quality prizes should be enough to tide you over til Saturday comes.

    Very limited capacity, so make sure you reserve in advance.

    The in house kitchen supremos Lucky Chip will be on hand with a supply of their award winning burgers & bites across the evening.

    Zimmer games is a ridiculous game show, think Task Master mixed with The Generation Game and hosted by Drag Grandmothers. 
    It’s ridiculously fun and absolutely hilarious.

  • Big Ol’ Musical Theatre Pub Quiz

    August 21, 2019
    What is a Jelicle Cat? What do you do with a BA in English? Who is 24601 (his name is Jean Val Jean)

    All the important questions about the songs and dances of stage and screen.

    We’ll do some RENT, reflect back on The Last 5 Years, and study up on our Book of Mormon. You’d have to be an American Idiot to miss it.
