The Legendary CPS Xmas Quiz

The wait is almost over – the legendary CPS Christmas Quiz is back this year, Friday 9th December 2022. Those of you who’ve taken part before know that this is not to be missed! We have another brilliant quiz planned for you this year and we can’t wait to kick off the festive season the best way we know how. As usual we will have copious amounts of sausage rolls (& vegetarian equivalents), mince pies, crisps, cheese and crackers plus wine, beer and maybe even a little mulled wine (& non-alco equivalents) to wash it all down. There will be prizes for the top 3 teams as well as for the best team name and best Christmas vibes, so get thinking!

The quiz will start at 6:30pm (arrive from 6:15pm) in the Nyholm Room on Friday 9th December. There will be teams of up to 6 people (4 minimum). Registration is £30 per team (£5 each for a team of 6 people). If you want to have a team bigger than 6, this is possible, but the fee will be increased accordingly and there will be a point deduction. Entry is strictly for CPS members only (we will be checking). If any of your teammates are not CPS members they will need to pay their membership fee (£5.00 for their whole under/post grad).

Don’t you worry, if you don’t have a team, you can register as an individual for a £5 fee and we will assign you to a team if you’re successful in the ballot.

Please email us directly if you wish to do this, in addition to submitting your team online (The website will only allow you to submit 6 members). 

You will be able to register your team online on Tuesday 22nd November from 9:00-16:00 on this page of our website.
