British Pub Week and the Big Quiz Challenge

British Pub Week and the Big Pub Quiz Challenge


Where would we be without our local pub? As we all know the British Pub has been a cornerstone of our communities for many centuries, and plays a vital role in social cohesion and community well-being


The pub quiz is a less venerable institution but one which, in just a few decades, we’ve really taken to our hearts.


British Pub Week and the Family Holiday Association are joining forces to hold a national quiz on 28 October to raise funds to help severely disadvantaged children get a short seaside break with their families.


Inez Ward, the organiser of British Pub Week said: “when planning a week of events to celebrate the British Pub it was obvious that one of those events would be a quiz. I’m delighted that now we’re working with the Family Holiday Association, we can use this as an opportunity to raise some funds for this excellent charity.”


Joe Hipgrave of the Family Holiday Association said “This will be the third year of our nationwide charity pub quiz. It’s great that we can work with British Pub Week this year. Like thousands of UK charities, we benefit from the generosity of pub owners, managers and staff, and their customers. It’s great to have the opportunity to raise some much-needed funds for our work, while acknowledging the essential role that pubs play in their communities”.

Pubs wishing to take part in the Big Pub Quiz Challenge can register on It only takes a few minutes and is free. In return they will receive their quiz, plus a pack of materials to help them publicise and make the most of their event – in short, everything they need.


In return, they are asked to use the evening to raise funds for the Family Holiday Association.  Organisers and participants will have the chance to win some fabulous prizes too, courtesy of Thomson Cruises, Thomson Ski and others – cruises, skiing holidays and a Spanish getaway are among the goodies on offer.
