Pub Quiz at The Queens Arms - CHANGED VENUE

  • Nov 21, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ - This event has changed venue from the Flapper to the Queens Arms. I know it's late notice but the Flapper only posted the information up today (Wednesday 20th) that they're cancelling this week's quiz because of the gig at the NIA tomorrow night. Although I knew the gig was on, in the past the Flapper haven't cancelled quizzes when they've been on the same days as events at the NIA, so I wasn't expecting this to be cancelled.

If anybody would like to meet up beforehand so we can walk to this new venue together, please post a comment. We could all meet at around 7.45 at Birmingham New Street or by the Bull statue in the centre of town.

As I know we all enjoy our quiz nights, I've found another quiz running this Thursday in the city centre. There wasn't enough time to do tonnes of research or to check out the venue beforehand, but I'm sure it will be a good night out.

This is from the website of the Queens Arms: "Every Thursday from 8:30pm join us for the best pub quiz in Birmingham.

It's just £1 per player to enter and there’s no limit on the size of the teams, so get a group together and test your wits against the best! But get in early in case it gets busy.

With food served til 9pm you can also take advantage of our buy one get one free pizza offer while you wait for the quiz to start."

The website for this quiz is here: http://www.queensarmsbar.co.uk/quiz.html

Note - the quiz starts at 8.30, and it costs £1 per person. Please try to bring your pound in change. The winning team get £20, and the team in second place get £10. There is no maximum team size but I suggest we split into smaller teams of 5 or 6, in order to get the maximum benefit of potentially winning first and second prizes.

 

Please post a comment on whether or not you'd still be interested in going out despite the change of venue.

    Hey Guys! As there is nothing on this week, does anyone fancy doing the quiz at the Flapper on Thursday?

      I might be up for it if anyone else is. Assuming the Flapper doesn't cancel again ;)

    Hey guys, we are going to start walking to the pub from the bull as it's freezing!

    Hey guys, I've had 3 confirmations. So that makes 4 of us definitely attending at the new venue tonight. We plan to meet at 7.45 at the bull statue in the town centre =)

    Yeah, I'll be there. I'll try to make it to the 7:45 meeting point, but I am afraid I might end up late because of errands. I will be there sooner or later though.

    Okay guys, email is sent and I've changed the event description to reflect the new quiz night I've found. I'm going out now but I'll keep an eye on the comments here so please post your thoughts on whether you'd be interested in going to the Queens Arms quiz night tomorrow, or if you'd rather the night be cancelled. Thanks =)

    Flapper just posted on facebook that they arent having a pub quiz tomorrow...

    November 20, 2013

    • Nikki

      Yeah, I saw. I was going to send an email but looks like you beat me to it.
      The cancellation is supposedly because of the queens of the stone age gig - I figured they'd still go ahead with the quiz because they've not cancelled it when there have been gigs at the NIA on Thursdays in the past.
      This throws a spanner in the works somewhat. Anybody got any thoughts? Do people still want to go out? I'll try to get some feedback when I'm out tonight =)

      http://www.queensarms...­ How about here? If people still want to go to a pub quiz tomorrow night.

    Yeah, I am interested in the MCM expo. Went to few ones in London and had a blast, however I do wonder how big is it compared to its London counterparts and whether is it as actively organised is it from various companies.

    Aikido class is every Thursday... though I think once you've finished the intro classes you can choose to go to the Wednesday sessions. I'm going to ask about it this week so while I can't make this meet hopefully I'll be there for Dec 5th's.
    By the way, the MCM Birmingham Comic Con is on Nov23/24. I'm planning to go and judging from my last meets there are people here nerdy enough to be interested in that. I suggest we create an event just to find out who else will be attending - but don't bother setting a time/place. These things are just too chaotic for that. The way I figure it is that if you actually want to go to Comic Con you're gonna go regardless of who else is showing up.
