Pub Quiz Questions and Answers.

A busy pub quiz in Glasgow.

Massive Archive Of Pub Quiz Questions

The key point of this site is to provide ideas for quiz questions. A completely free resource for quiz masters.
My name is Barry, I am a radio presenter & quiz host in the UK. By freely uploading my entire archive of over 12,000 quiz questions, I hope you find this resource useful for finding ideas for questions.

If you are copying & pasting questions directly from this site, that’s fine, but check that the information is up to date. For example, if there is reference to the “next Olympics” or if there is a celebrity “dead or alive” round, please remember some of the questions on this site were written some years ago.

Ideas For Quiz Questions

Whether you are an experienced pub quiz master, question writer for a TV production, run an afternoon quiz in retirement housing or just need to prepare a one-off quiz for a fundraiser event. I hope you find this site useful.

Writing your own quiz questions always results in a far better quiz night experience for your players. However, coming up with new ideas for questions every week can be challenging. That is the purpose of this site: A resource for quiz question ideas and subjects.

Regularly Updated

I will occasionally upload batches of quizzes. Rather than uploading every week, I will often upload 5 weeks worth of quizzes at a time. So bookmark this page and check back for regular updates.
