Pub Quiz Challenge

smarthomes’ first pub quiz night took place on 24th April at the Plume of Feathers in Shirley.

Another four are planned over the next few months, will all proceeds going to local charity SoLo who provide activities for children and adults with learning disabilities. 

This first event raised £77 for the charity and was great fun, but also very challenging! Seven teams took part in the quiz which was based on multiple choice questions testing their current affairs, TV, music and general knowledge. 

The smarthomes ‘Smarties’ team were doing so well until they got stumped by the music round. The winning team for the evening – ‘Howlers Growlers’ – walked away with a hamper containing six bottles of wine and £60 of Amazon vouchers. Spot prizes were also handed out throughout the quiz, as well as a prize being awarded to the team who won the ‘Play your cards right’ challenge. 

The quiz master for these evenings is Stoo Pittaway who is an expert in speed-quizzing smartphone pub quizzes. Stoo has hosted over 500 quizzing events and is renowned for his fast and fun style. Recent reviews include:

‘I attended one of Stoo’s events and it was great! Quizzes aren’t my thing, however, to my surprise, I really enjoyed the night! The atmosphere was fantastic!’

‘Had a great night recently at Ralph’s Bar Broadway Plaza where Stoo hosted a charity speed quizzing event. Brilliant concept – I’m hooked!’

‘Great service and very entertaining. This was such a great way to do a quiz night!! ‘
