Welcome, all, to the all new Tuesday night pub quiz!

Grab yourselves a beer and a bag of crisps from our resident bar wenches summerof76 & MSK, this weeks quiz will commence shortly!

Couple of rules of course:

1. Turn your mobiles off and put them face down on the table - no googling here please, nor texting your dad! And no peeking at anyone else's answers. As my very own dad used to say, cheaters only cheat themselves!

2. In the event of a tie, a tiebreaker question will be offered on Wednesday evening, don't turn up for that and you completely forfeit your spot at the top!

3. Papers will be marked on Wednesday's, and the leaderboard updated Wednesday evening. Send me them by PM please, keep them to yourselves!

And that's it. Eyes down... here come this weeks questions.
