Talk Thursday 13 November 2014, 7:15 PM

Join us for the final Quiz this year, hosted by our unsurpassed quizmasters Caroline Johns and Dr Keith Surridge, and win a chance to see the critically acclaimed musical The Scottsboro Boys now showing at the Garrick Theatre for a strictly limited season.


The quiz champions will win three pairs of tickets to experience the show that everyone is talking about. Step right up and jump on board for this sensational musical which brings to life the extraordinary true story of nine teenagers, in a case that changed history forever. Winner of the Critics’ Circle Best Musical Award 2013 and nominated for six Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, this is also the final collaboration of legendary composing duo Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret) and is directed and choreographed by five-time TONY Award-winner Susan Stroman (The Producers).  So try your luck and don’t miss out on this all-singing, all-dancing, exhilarating and bold new musical. Runs until Saturday 21 February 2015.

The idea is for members to round up your family and friends and test your knowledge. Teams can consist of up to six people, and there will be five rounds of 10 questions. The entry cost is £5 per person with all money raised going to the Frontline Fund, assisting families of fixers around the world killed or injured while working with the international media.

Caroline Johns is a reformed historian, having given up her PhD when the roof of her garret caved in and the novelty of penury wore off. She left the hallowed groves of academe (lecturing on the BA Journalism course at City University) to cross to ‘the dark side’ that is the private sector and now works for Deloitte as speechwriter to the UK CEO and chief of staff to the global chairman.

Dr Keith Surridge is a history lecturer in several American college programmes in London. He is the co-author of The Boer War (with Denis Judd), which, if you look hard, may even still be available in some good book shops.
