LJMU hosts Liverpool Universities Pub Quiz
24 April 2012
Liverpool John Moores University alumni, staff and friends recently gathered at The Engine Room in LiverpoolSU's Haigh building for the latest bi-annual pub quiz against the University of Liverpool.
Around 120 people attended and with the aggregate score of LJMU trailing 2-1, the quiz was a keenly fought affair in a lively, yet friendly atmosphere.
After two hours of conferring, debating and head scratching, the overall winners came from the University of Liverpool with the team 'John Hylton Was Here' coming out on top with an impressive score of 61.5 out of 70.
The highest scoring LJMU team was the 'Kingsway Massive' (pictured left: Matt Blandford, Kathy Houghton, Martin Jones and Shaun McDonald) who scored an acceptable 54 out of 70.
The Quiz prizes were generously supplied by the Augustus John Pub and the University of Liverpool Press. Team members from 'John Hylton Was Here' received six bottles of wine whilst each member of the 'Kingsway Massive' was given a copy of The World's Most Difficult Pub Quiz.
