The Frontline Club Quiz – October 2014

Talk Thursday 9 October 2014, 7:15 PM


The Club Quiz returns after the summer break with quizmasters Caroline Johns and Dr Keith Surridge. Having been billed as one of ‘the hardest quizzes in London’ it is sure to attract the cream of Frontline Club quizzing talent.

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 Fixers’ Fund, assisting families of fixers around the world killed or injured while working with the international media.

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 11.59.02The Quiz Champions will win tickets to Mike Bartlett’s critically acclaimed new future history play, King Charles III, which has transferred from Almeida Theatre to the Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.

The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule?

Directed by Rupert Goold, this ‘bracingly provocative and outrageously entertaining new play’ (The Independent) explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.

King Charles III is the fourth production to transfer from the Almeida Theatre to the West End with co-producer Sonia Friedman Productions, following Chimerica, Ghosts and 1984.

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.
