Quiz Club!

Staying in is the new going out and it turns out at-home date nights and group parties can be really memorable. Restaurants countrywide are stepping up to the plate (ahem!) to deliver your favourite dishes to your doorstep and with apps like Zoom and Houseparty bringing people together virtually, you can get a taste of those pre-social distancing, off-duty evenings, from the comfort of your sofa.
Because we know you're run off your feet during these tough times, we’ve pulled together this quiz perfect for an evening once the little ones are in bed. Host a video call with your nearest and dearest and get stuck in - it will be fun, promise.
