Quiz Nights

Throughout the recent history of The Swan, quiz nights have always been popular. So in September the quiz was re-launched and it was extremely popular. So much so, we decided to make it a regular event.

The rogues gallery below records the winners history for posterity and for bragging rights too. There can be no argument on who has won when, and how many times. No stories, no fairy tales, no disputes.

Post-lockdown

The quiz is now on holiday during July. We are currently evaluating how we can run quizzes in the new norm. Watch this space!

During lockdown

During the Covid-19 lockdown, The Swan ran a series of online events. These are aimed to bring the community together for a little bit of fun. The Quiz is a big part of it. Run online over the Internet.
