Less cramped, cheaper drinks, lots of parking and buses stop right outside. But still the same successful format, with fabulous prizes for teams and individuals. However it's not all about winning, but about having fun while exploring and learning about our queer heritage, as ALL the questions are LGBT related. Categories are sport, music, art & literature, entertainment, history, geography, politics & society and 'local'. We guarantee that everyone will know lots, but also learn lots this evening. Come with a ready formed team (upto 5) or come on your own and we will match you with some team-mates. Everyone is welcome, whether lesbian, gay, bi, trans, non-binary, questioning, or a straight ally.. Pay bar in the room, bar food available, fully accessible. £5 / £3 low income per person.
