Quest Grand Prix - 4 August 2018

We now have all but a few of the Grand Prix scores in, and checking with the one venue yet to declare we think we can go ahead and publish top line results. While some new names may appear in the top 20, we’re not expecting the top 10, or the medals positions for the genres to change (“famous last w...

More sad news

We've learned that the UK quiz community has lost yet another of its highly regarded fellowship, with the death on Friday 23 March of Dick Cribb. For as long as I knew him - and that was well over a decade - he lived in Kent, but was originally from Brighton and spent much of his childhood in Hounsl...
