Ready to play? David Hoyle goes back to his roots for one night only with a radically alternative pub quiz.

David Hoyle started his career hosting pub quiz shows, which soon gave birth to The Divine David persona and eventually his own Channel 4 TV show. Now he’s back behind the microphone. But buckle up – this is no ordinary pub quiz.

Join us in the Social (it’s almost a pub), grab your teammates and throw everything you know out the window. David Hoyle makes the rules.
