Hardeep Is Your Quiz?

Broadcaster and comedian Hardeep Singh Kohli was the quizmaster for this year's Four Colman Getty English PEN Quiz, now in its 11th year and one of the highlights of the pre-Christmas season. The questions were devised by our very own Marcus Berkmann, with further Brain Men back-up running the big electronic scoreboard.

240 journalists, writers, authors, publishers and PR people enjoyed a fantastic dinner six spectacular rounds at The Royal Institute of British Architects in Portland Place, culminating in one of the tightest results we've had. The Daily Telegraph and The Times drew for first place, and drew again on the tie-break! A second tie-break was called into play, with Education Secretary Michael Gove, representing The Times, pipping the opposition to the answer.

RSA Quiz Lands Safely At Heathrow

Brain Man Chris Pollikett was our Quizmaster at Heathrow's Park Inn Hotel last week for the RSA 2012 Quiz, attended by over 100 people. In a very successful departure from our usual rounds format, we fired off 30 quiztacular questions over 30 minutes, all accompanied by music, photos, animations and film clips.

After the scores were tallied, Two Bottles of Champagne were the winning team, with 50 Shades of Grey Matter (great name!) runners-up and Old Blokes and a Lady in third place. 'Feedback from the event has been incredibly positive so thank you once again for your contribution,' was the client's verdict!

Apollo's Night Takes Off With Brain Men Quiz

Our intrepid Brain Men Quizmaster Marcus Berkmann charmed the crowd with his confounding quizology during the Apollo Global Management Summer 2012 bash recently at the excellent Living Room, W1, just off Regent Street.

The competition was stiff, with only 14 points separating top placers The Ben Johnson Running Club, who scored 82/100, from the wooden spooners at the bottom after five rounds of tough quizzing.

Two Quizzes Brain Men

In the past week we've hosted two quizzes in London, both fundraising for charity. The first, at the Reform Club in Pall Mall, was on behalf of Working Families. The second was for Barclays at the Grange City Hotel next to the Tower of London, who were supporting ABF - The Soldiers' Charity. Both made a heap of money for the charities concerned. In fact Working Families said: 'It’s the best quiz we’ve had to date, and one that raised the most money, so we couldn’t be more delighted!'

Our Brain Men Quizmaster on both occasions was Marcus Berkmann. Here are some pics...
