Pub Quizzes in Sunderland...hosted by me!

As mentioned earlier in he year, I never really saw myself as a quiz host but having jumped at the chance to host a quiz night back in May I have never looked back. I am currently running two quiz nights with a further two set to come. Here are the details of the current nights. If you are in the Sunderland area looking for a quiz.....then I'd love to see you there!

The Albert, Sunderland
Running since May, we have a good team of regulars now at the Albert with different winners most weeks. The quiz starts at 7.30pm with a picture round, leading into a News, Entertainment, Music, Connectons, Themed Rounds, Gamble questions, Top 5s and General Knowledge rounds! In addition we have a jackpot which is growing by the week and up to around £170 this week. At the end of the month we also do a Last Team Standing game which is another chance to win!

The Peacock
A slightly newer venture is the Peacock in the heart of Sunderland City Centre. A unique pub which is a superb setting for a quiz. Same format as above and growing every week!

It has been about a month since I managed to post anything up on the blog, but with the Quiz League in full flow as well as my own new Quiz Night ventures launching across Sunderland, it has been a bit of a struggle to find the time. I do intend to post up some of the pub quizzes I have been producing on a weekly basis on the blog at some point....
