Event description

Are you ready to get quizzical? Science troubadour, Jonny Berliner ("Seriously funny"- Scotsman) and Ugly Animal wrangler, Simon Watt ("All the wit and passion of the best comics"- Chortle) have created an especially silly pub quiz cum gameshow with a difference. In a nerdtastic night to remember you will have your geek knowledge tested, take part in the origami Olympics, play with puns and enjoy entertainment from our special guest. Niche prizes to be won. Full marks for foolishness. Paxman would hate it. 

Will you have the folding skills to win the Origami Olympics? Will you be the last one standing in the Elimination Round of Death!!! Win points in wacky rounds, and pick up points for pedantry, to give your team the advantage in a fiendish final challenge, like The Leaning Tower of Pasta, or the Super Scrabble Scramble!

Don't have a quiz team? Don't worry! We'll be sorting people into teams on the night if they need one.

Timing

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm.
