Sheffield Alumni Quiz - London 2017

A whopping twenty-two teams took part in our annual Sheffield Alumni Quiz, held this year at a brand new venue, the Gallery bar, Student Central, University of London.

The quiz took place on the evening of Thursday 6 April and we had over 100 guests join us from a mix of subjects and graduation years, ranging from 1969 right up to 2016.

As always the quiz covered a great selection of topics from current affairs, a section focused on Sheffield alumni in the news, and a Sheffield landmarks picture round which caused some mild frustration as people said “I know I know it! But…”.

London Quiz 2017

Heaven Knows We’re Quizerable Now, our winning team from 2016 attended, hoping to take home the trophy yet again. And a special welcome to The Old Fire Station team, who pulled themselves together after members separately contacted the Alumni Office hoping to join a team.

The team who took home the title this year were Old Farts of Earnshaw, who performed outstandingly for most of the evening. However, they had to fight for the title against Planning 2 Lose who scored well in the final Wipe Out round. This made for a tense tie-breaker before Old Farts of Earnshaw were crowned the winners.

Old Farts of Earnshaw claimed the coveted Alumni Quiz Trophy and a bag of Sheffield alumni goodies. Goodie bags also went to second and third place teams, Planning 2 Lose and Spiders from Mars.

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 to University of London’s Student Central for letting us use the superb Gallery bar. See you all again next year.
