Pub Quiz Walk!

Next Monday 12th July sees our third Pub Quiz Walk – The Fleet Street Half & Half (half walking tour, half pub quiz), meeting at Temple Station at 7pm.

To whet your appetite, here are a few questions from the last Half & Half walk/pub quiz which took place in Hampstead earlier this year… more questions – and answers! – later in the week.

1. Three Queens are commemorated in statue form along the length of Fleet Street. Which Queens?

2. Who was the last Prime Minister to die at Downing Street?

3. The three orange squares on the English Monopoly board – Vine St., Marlborough St. & Bow St. – are, unlike the other colour groupings, in three different neighbourhoods. Why are they grouped together? What links them?

4. Who was the last British winner of a singles title at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club – popularly known as Wimbledon?

5. “The Tottenham Sound Has Crushed The Beatles!” Thus ran a Daily Express headline from January 1963 (!). Which group were purveyors of the so-called “Tottenham Sound”?

  1. I shall attempt a stab at it:
    1. Mary Queen of Scots, Queen Anne, Queen Elizabeth
    2. Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston or Lord Palmerston
    3. Not sure-more valuable, they total pounds 560 or if you "Go to Jail", take the Chance card and Community Chest and roll either a 5 or 9, you have a chance of landing on one of the orange squares and could they be linked by pubs?
    4. Fred Perry
    5. The Dave Clark Five
    You must tell me how many I have gotten incorrect..the horror! :-)

  2. Well done Kimmy – not a bad guess for no.3! We've posted the answers now so you can check how you did. Thanks for joining in!
