The End of Festival Quiz
Have you found yourself daydreaming in recent times, that you’re back in your favourite pub, languishing over a pint of the black nectar, enjoying the craic, simply sharing time and space with old friends? Hashtag the good old days, eh?
Imagine! Belfast’s festival quiz will bring proceedings to a close this year and hopefully help you feel you’re back in the pub, sharing time, space and knowledge with some new festival buddies.
As people locked down last year, online quizzes popped up and filled a gap which helped a lot of people get through difficult times. As some passionate people were singing opera arias across balconies, and others were playing badminton, tens of thousands of us flocked to websites to source information which we turned into questions. So, it seemed right to end this year’s Imagine! Belfast with our version of a quiz which will hopefully leave you feeling a little better about the world.
Our festival quiz will be time well spent. Knowingly or otherwise, you will leave with some new nuggets of knowledge – your understanding of how the world works will have been enriched. For example, did you know that Steely Dan took its name from a steam powered strap on a vibrator in a William Burroughs’ novel?! Or that dog’s poo is white when they eat bones? Or that the meaning of the word ‘snaccident’ is to accidentally eat a whole packet of biscuits at one sitting. If this is the sort of the life-enriching knowledge you relish and yearn for, then this is the quiz for you!
Your quiz master for this evening, Kathryn Kelly, launched her own quiz with friends last April; nearly a year later, it’s still going strong every Saturday night. “It has been a constant highlight for us throughout lockdown. We’ve had friends pop in from seven countries across three continents – it really has helped keep us all sane. And whilst there’s no substitute for seeing friends in the flesh, I have to be honest, this is the next best thing.”
We have a few modest prizes with vouchers available for first prize £50, second £30 and third £20.
