The Prince of Wales (Highgate) Quiz Book Summary


The Prince of Wales (Highgate) Quiz Book by Marcus Berkmann

Can you name the first six Blue Peter presenters? (A point for each.) The Prince of Wales pub in Highgate, north London, has held a weekly Tuesday night pub quiz for nearly twenty years. Its reputation precedes it: the quiz is widely acknowledged as one of the best in London, if not the country. What was surrendered to Lieutenant-General Tomoyuki Yamashita on February 15th, 1942? Now the regulars who set the quizzes bring you the Prince of Wales (Highgate) Pub Quiz Book. Even if you're stumped by some of the questions, this book is as much about the answers, which will enlighten and astonish readers in equal measure. What was unique about Alan Shepard's golf shot on February 6th, 1971? The exquisitely designed Prince of Wales (Highgate) Pub Quiz Book does for pub quizzes what Ben Schott did for lists.
