Smack in the middle of Strøget, the Irish Rover pub is launching a new monthly quiz with a bang. Expect an evening chocker-block with entertainment, fun, surprises and prizes. The opening round will feature a performance by Ian Burns and co, who will be performing five scenes from classic dramas ahead of the worldwide premiere of the actor’s new play, Shakespeare’s Women (watch this space for more details). Throughout the night, there will be lots of spot prizes, including one for the team that comes last and also the individual who gets closest in the individual Snowball question at the end of the night. Presented by Ben Hamilton (err, that’s me), if you can’t make this one, watch out for the next instalment (touch wood) on March 7, featuring a music round performed by Ray Weaver.
