Bard buffs invited to Shakespeare Quiz Night in Rugby

Rugby Editorial 15th Feb, 2024   0

BARD buffs who know their Tempests from their Twelfth Nights are being challenged to put their knowledge to the test and compete for prizes in a Shakespeare Quiz Night at Rugby Library.

Warwickshire County Council’s (WCC) library service is hosting the quiz tomorrow (Friday February 16) as part of its ‘Love Shakespeare’ half-term week celebrations.

The questions for the themed quiz night have all been written by Dr Anjna Chouhan, former Senior Lecturer in Shakespeare Studies and co-writer of the Shakespeare edition of Trivial Pursuit.

The evening will be hosted by an expert quizmaster, and will feature performances of scenes and speeches between rounds.

WCC’s Customer and Transformation spokesman Coun Yousef Dahmash said: “This quiz offers a great opportunity for residents to test their knowledge about the world of Shakespeare.

“It will be a wonderful evening of entertainment that covers some fantastic literature, and so I encourage anyone who enjoys the work of Shakespeare to get involved and enjoy this vibrant Shakespearian experience.”

The evening is among cultural and creative programming and outreach activities made possible by Warwickshire Libraries’ status as a National Portfolio Organisation, which it gained last year. Warwickshire Libraries is now receiving up to £630,000 in funding from Arts Council England’s Investment Programme over the course of three years.

Tickets to the Shakespeare Quiz Night cost £10 per person, including a welcome drink. Visit to book.
