Events Team Quiz

As a way of keeping in touch with each other, as we’re missing each other loads during lockdown, we organised a huge team zoom quiz to keep spirits high! Each of us wrote up a round of 5 questions, so there was a lot of variation. It was lots of fun and a great way to see everyone!

It seems that everyone is using quizzes to stay in contact with friends and family (fun fact – the UK is one of the most quiz obsessed countries in the world!) So if you’re looking for a new quiz to use, you can find ours below (the answers can be downloaded at the bottom!)

If you take part please do share your scores with us in the comments or tweet us @CitywireEvents
