Hello there! 

 

The weekend has landed. As always, the Pub Quiz HQ weekly newsletter landed in readers' inboxes first thing this morning.

 

The newsletter contains all of our latest quizzes, podcast episodes plus I dig into our archives for some quiz rounds that will be suitable for the coming week.

 

I've heard of some pubs even using our quizzes in their own Pub Quiz nights, which is brilliant! We'd delighted to be able to help out. 

 

It's free to receive and you can sign up for next Saturday's right now. Ensure you get our latest content straight in your inbox!

 

I would also like to take a moment to say thank you to Colin, Garry, Kath, John and Clifford who have taken the time to buy me a coffee!

 

All the money goes towards keeping the site online. It's appreciated, it helps pay the server bills!

 

Our podcast series continued, with two further episodes, both under ten minutes long so perfect for some quick quizzing. You can find it on Spotify and iTunes.

 

Finally, it was an exciting night in my house on Thursday(!) as the new ITV Chaser Darragh made his first appearance. I won't spoil the result if you haven't seen it but it's fair to say he got off to a rocky start and the show had a very impressive finish! Definitely worth a watch!

 

Here's a set of six questions about things that occurred this week.

 

Happy quizzing!

Adam
