7pm for 7.30pm, ends 11pm
Tickets £5 on the door (cons – £3 EYG / students)

We don’t know what will be happening with UK politics on March 29th, but we do know that we might all appreciate an evening of fun with friends. So join us for this big, green, ‘Let’s not think about Brexit‘ pub quiz!

Featuring rounds on:
– Fantasy
– Escapism
– European trivia… and more!

There’ll be a donations bar, and you are also welcome to BYOB.
There will, of course, be a Brexit swear jar to help raise funds for future elections (or referendums….?). Prizes provided for the winning team, and the team with the best name.

Teams will be 5 or 6 people, and you can either come with a team already sorted, or turn up and we’ll find you some fellow quizzers. It would be really helpful if you know you’re bringing a team, that you email us in advance on fundraising.edin@scottishgreens.org.ukQuiz runs 7.30pm – 9.30pm.

Accessibility:

Augustine United Church is wheelchair accessible and we will be using microphones with a hearing loop throughout the quiz.

Unfortunately children will not be allowed due to the licencing agreement, but babes in arms are welcome.
If there’s anything we can do to make it easier for you to attend, please contact fundraising.edin@scottishgreens.org.uk
