Virtual pub quizzes seem to be what’s getting us all through at the moment. Whether it be knocking one together yourself to celebrate a friend’s birthday on Zoom or piggybacking someone else’s, they give us a little bit of the stimulation and social interaction that we’re missing.

Well, don’t worry, because we’ve picked some of our favourite virtual pub quizzes out there, with a variety of times and days. Plus, lots of these brilliant venues are streaming other events and activities, so your schedule could be booked out before you know it.
