Virtual Pub Quiz Questions (1)

Since the start of isolation, I've been running pub quizzes for my friends and family at the weekends and we've had such a great time. Sometimes I just run them for fun, and sometimes I'll ask everyone to make a donation to a COVID-19 impacted charity in order to take part, which is a great way to raise some money for charity while we're all stuck at home.



I really don't like boring quizzes asking questions like, 'What is the Capital City of France', I like quizzes that make people laugh, make people think and that aren't easy, so I have spent absolutely hours scouring the internet for some brilliant trivia questions.


I guarantee laughter, and I guarantee you'll learn something new - but also be full of absolutely random and useless facts.

This is the first post of many as I have so many quiz questions in my little bank now so don't forget to check back here if you're looking for more! Some are multiple choice and some are free text but feel free just to take the questions and mix it up however you like, there are no categories in my quizzes because I like to be totally random!
