Event description

Description

While entrance is free, donations are appreciated (£2 per person suggested) and can be made at the event.

A great fun pub quiz night where you don’t need to know about the Periodic Table or dates of pre-Christian battles!

It will be a game of two halves - in the first the entire audience will join in a game of general and literary knowledge and, after a break to refresh glasses, the second half will pit a team from our own Pentlands Book Festival against a team from the Scottish Book Trust, during which all aspects of literature will be discussed and investigated. A sort of “QI” meets “The Write Stuff” played to the rules of “I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue”, where the scores don’t really count but points will go to the most enlightening and amusing answers.

Some general knowledge, plenty of weird facts…and if you can identify the two novels which have had their titles removed you’ll certainly enjoy the evening, which is the brainchild of the team that brought you ‘Paul Temple’ last year.

PS - You’ll need a pen or pencil!
