Stour Charity Quiz Night 2020 – Report

07 Feb

The Quiz

With over 155 quizzers in attendance the night was set to be fun-filled. There were 6 rounds made up of 4 traditional quiz rounds (‘2019’, ‘Simon Says’, ‘30’ and ‘Spaceman), a Picture round (‘Emoji; name the London Location’) and an ‘Activity Round’.

Inspired by Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK, the Activity Round required teams to create a hat/ensemble suitable for a day at the races! Teams were given a bag of supplies, a swimming pool noodle float and 10 minutes to model a look. The results were…breathtaking! The entries were Judged by our esteemed panel (Marc and Amani from Stour Chambers) and the winning entry was created by team ‘No Clue’.
The overall quiz winners were our local Legal Advisors (team name ‘Can’t Be Named For Legal Reasons’ who won by a half point! CONGRATULATIONS!
