Hey! 

 

It's Saturday morning, that means the Pub Quiz HQ weekly newsletter landed in readers' inboxes first thing this morning.

 

This week we're focusing on Christmas. It's packed full of our best Christmas quiz rounds to help you be the best quizmaster you can be this Christmas!

 

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.

 

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 Michelle, Matt, Callum and Pete who have taken the time to buy me a coffee!

 

It's really helpful and helps cover the cost of paying for the servers to keep this site online!

 

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.

 

Our 'Tuesday Night Quiz' series came to a close on Tuesday evening, having returned for a short four-week stint through Lockdown II. 'Cabin Fever Crew' took the victory in a closely fought quiz and with it being completely free to play, our generous players donated £300 for FareShare.

 

Incredibly generous!

 

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

 

Until next time!
