Forget a romantic evening of hearts, chocolate and wine – what you’re looking for is a night of hilarity, silliness, and good old quizzing!
Cambridge Junction presents a 25th anniversary quiz hosted and performed by Tom Roden of the brilliant New Art Club on Saturday 14 February from 8pm.
It all began back in November with Curating Cambridge, our five week cultural festival. Cambridge Junction and University of Cambridge Museums co-commissioned a show-cum-quiz to bring together the idiosyncrasies and stories of the city with the weird and wonderful collections of the museums.
The result – the wonderful, the bizarre, the sparkling ‘Things of Cambridge: A Pub Quiz’.
…. and now’s your chance to get those cogs turning and join in.
This time it’s adapted to challenge your knowledge of Cambridge Junction but your museum know-how will still be tested and as always be prepared to get hands-on with our artefacts.
Irreverent, historically accurate but downright stupid, the show celebrates 25 years of sex, (prescription) drugs and rock’n’roll – and theatre – since Cambridge Junction opened. Questions will range from trivia to hypothetical, philosophical to personal, Cambridge to Cambridge Junction!
The first test – to come up with a team name.
Lethal Quizzle, Quizzy Rascal, Quiz de Burgh… only seem to be able to think of pop star-related names. Desperately thinking of a museum-related one…
Cambridge Junction 25th Birthday celebrations – There’s a whole day dedicated to families, from fun workshops to unusual backstage tours, and for the grownies, as well as quizzing and comedy, their first ever club night makes a return. Alongside events to entertain and tickle, you can also check out and interact with ‘Percussion‘ – a musical intervention created by Cambridge University Architecture students.
The original ‘Things of Cambridge: A Pub Quiz’ was co-commissioned by Cambridge Junction and University of Cambridge Museums, supported using public funding by Arts Council England
