The results are in and the honour has passed on. There is a new Brain of Derbyshire, decided at this evening’s Brain of Derbyshire event, organised by the Derbyshire Pub Quiz League.

 

In a closely scored final, Gordon Taylor, Iwan Thomas and Chris Jones saw themselves overtaken by David Edwards on the last question. David is the Brain of Derbyshire 2018, and will set the questions next May to identify the Brain of Derbyshire 2019.

The annual Brain of Derbyshire competition is organised by the Derbyshire Pub Quiz League. This year’s event will be held on Wednesday May 16th at the Royal Oak, Ockbrook.

Start time is 8:00 PM.

Participants do not have to be members of the DPQL – it is open to members of the public from Derbyshire and its Staffordshire and Nottinghamshire borders.

The evening consists of a written first round of 50 questions (bring a pen!), with the eight highest scorers going through to two semi-finals played on the stage using buzzers, and a final round of four to decide the winner. A 15-to-1 style quiz will entertain those eliminated after the first round.

It would help organisers if non-League members send advance notice that they wish to attend. Please use our Contact Page.
