Seventeen teams took part in our annual Sheffield Alumni Quiz, held at The Waterfront Bar in London’s Kings College Student’s Union on Thursday 7 April 2016.

We had over 80 guests join us, from a mix of subjects, and graduation years from 1972 up to 2015.

As always the quiz covered a great selection of topics from current affairs, a famous authors picture round and a section focused on Sheffield; which caused a bit of exasperation when teams were struggling to remember in which traditional county of England Sheffield sits.*

The Big Lubikowski, our winning team from 2015 attended, hoping to take home the trophy for the second year running. Although in second place when scores were counted during an intermission, they fell behind during the rather tricky Russell Group round.

The team who took home the title this year, Heaven Knows I’m Quizerable Now performed an outstanding race for the finish during the Wipeout round with a fantastic score of 8! They claimed the coveted Alumni Quiz Trophy and a bag of Sheffield alumni goodies. Goodie bags also went to second and third place teams, Well Schooled Road and Old Earnshavians Plus Stevenson Ringer – so well done to them too.

The quiz was a great success and we’d like to say a big thank you to all Sheffield alumni and friends who took part, Jo Tedds, the quiz master and also Kings College Student’s Union for letting us use the superb Waterfront Bar. See you all again next year.
