Happy August Bank Holiday!
 

Today we have another set of pub quiz questions for you, ten general knowledge questions covering music, sports, books and more.

 

As usual, we've supplied the questions first so you can have a go at answering them yourself, before providing the answers afterwards so you can use them for your next quiz.
