Quiz Time - What Was That All About?! – Part 2

TV & Radio presenter Gavin Inskip returns to Joshua’s Tavern

The second and final part of Gav’s newest pen & paper quiz. Full of weird, funny and content-heavy rounds to mark the ending of the weirdest period of our lives!

From Donald Trump, ‘Vax to the Future’ and ‘Cop-Out 26’ it’s far from a boring old pub quiz,

Cover charge is a mere £5 per person, maximum team size of 6.  With prizes ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, will you be brave enough to take the gamble?   

Quiz starts at 7pm sharp so come early to grab a drink, pen and paper supplied, just bring your enthusiasm, knowledge and a thirst!

DATE:  7th September 2022

Timings:  7pm to 9pm

A portrait drawing of Joshua Reynolds at The Londoner Hotel

Sir Joshua Reynolds

“What has pleased and continues to please, is likely to please again”. So said Sir Joshua Reynolds, 18th century portrait artist and Leicester Square local. When visiting our tavern, look out for tributes to his artistry and fondness for liquid luncheons, such as a hand painted mural and a dining receipt from 1788 at Somerset House.
