Site Update:

Once again, thank you to all of our regular visitors and hello to anyone who has found this site recently.

 

This week I published two further episodes of the weekly general knowledge Pub Quiz HQ podcast which you can listen to online at Spotify, on iTunes or any other place you find your podcasts. I've yet to hear of anyone scoring 10/10 so the challenge has been set!

 

I'd love some feedback if you've played along.

 

I've also added a 'Buy Me a Coffee' link to the menu where you can buy me a brew, if you would like too!

 

Thank you very much to Tony, Jamie, Carthy and Doulala for their generous donations of coffee this week.

 

All money goes towards keeping the site online. We'll do all that we can to keep the quizzes coming over the winter.

 

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