What better way to kick of the Easter weekend than with a pub quiz down the local? We would love you to join us at the Red Lion pub tonight for a fun quiz that’s all about London.

If you are interested in London history and archaeology, know some important facts about London or just simply want to learn a bit more and have a couple pints with the Heritage Key Crew then head over to the Red Lion this evening after work. The quiz kicks of 7pm sharp, until 9pm, at 23 Crown Passage, London.

There are hundreds if not thousands of back street pubs tucked away in London and the pub quiz is an English tradition! The Red Lion is close to St James and Pall Mall (nearest tube station is Green Park), but far enough off the beaten track to feel like a local, and it’s on one of the cutest alleys.

We’ve got some great prizes lined up for the winner in tonight’s pub quiz. Theres are meals for two at old-style traditional pub the other Red Lion in Duke of York St, and at the trendy Balls of Brothers in St James Street, as well as free entry for a winner plus guest for any event in the month of April or May at comedy club The Good Ship in Kilburn High Road. Plus more surprise prizes throughout the night.
