The Frontline Club Quiz – September 2013
The infamous Club Quiz returns after the summer break with quizmasters Caroline Johns and Dr Keith Surridge. Having previously been billed as one of ‘the hardest quizzes in London’ it is sure to attract the cream of Frontline Club quizzing talent.
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.
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.
