100 tickets have now been sold and only 50 left, so be quick if you want one.

Last Year’s Start of Year quiz was another well-attended event even though I chose to cap the numbers at 130 due to the post-effects of COVID. Next year’s event returns completely to normal and the number will be capped at the usual 150.

Next year’s quiz will be my 25th annual event and I already have some great ideas lined up with a couple of the old favourites in there as well. The venue is the same – The Shamrock Club in Welwyn Garden City and the tickets prices are the same as last year at just £10 which includes the buffet.

The doors will be open from 4pm and the quiz starts at 5pm. As always, there will be a break at the halfway stage for the buffet and a raffle and three or four spot prizes along the way.

Tickets are on sale from Monday 27th November. They can be purchased from me, with cash, at any of my quiz venues or if you are further afield, then email me for details and a bank transfer can be arranged and tickets collected on the night. If you’re using Paypal, please note there will be a surcharge to cover their fees. Please email me at for the bank details.

Any other questions, please feel free to get in contact.

Look forward to seeing you all there again.

next year’s start of year quiz will be held on Saturday 6th January 2024
