QUIZ #150 - YOU'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGEST BOAT

To celebrate the Joy of reaching the 150th edition of You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat - and the Fury that This Is The End for our Quiz Show at the Hackney Attic - there's A Happening Of Monumental Proportions. More rounds, more questions, plenty of surprises: it’s everything you love in Maximum Overdrive and It is gonna be Big.

You’ll need to be an Early Man (or woman) as this quiz will be starting at 7pm and Room isn’t Limitless so avoid the Spectre of being a Mad Max and buy your tickets in advance.

Sliding Doors: 18:00 | Mayhem: 19:00 | The Purge: 22:00

Tickets are £7 for this quiz and are available here for Upstairs At The Ritzy and here for the Hackney Attic. The Lord Nelson will be showing a standard-length quiz featuring some of the rounds from the 150th special.



Clues for Quiz #149

Thanks as always to everyone who played the quiz this month (the first time we've sold out both Ritzy and Hackney in advance of quiz night!). Now on to May and Quiz 149 (just one away from our 150th spectacular!).

Your clues this month:

  • Daniel Day-Lewis
  • Films that share a title
  • Fictional queens
  • Soundtracks from films beginning with M

And your free answer for this month is: The Phantom of The Opera.

News on the Hackney Attic

Those who were at Tuesday’s Hackney Attic quiz will know time is short for the quiz there. We have now been informed that the Hackney Attic will cease to be at the end of June.

We’ve been a fixture there since the doors first opened (over seven years ago) so we’re very sad to see it closed. However, the ‘good’ news is we are planning a MEGA QUIZ to celebrate our 150th edition of YGNABB in June, so we’ll be going out in style in Hackney!

We'll be carrying on at The Ritzy and The Lord Nelson while we look for a replacement venue for the Attic. If you have any suggestions for somewhere that can seat 100+ with a good AV setup, then we'd love to hear them.

Details on the You're Gonna Need A BIGGEST Boat extravaganza to follow soon - and we've still got two more quizzes before then!
