Holiday Edition Pub Quiz

Join this free festive online pub quiz and battle the other contestants in different rounds with fun questions about Utrecht, Dutch traditions and culture and more! And you can win prizes as well. How cool is that?

The event will take place on Monday December 28th from 6 – 8PM. Unlike most pub quizzes, you will play individually and not as a team. For every question you answer correctly you will get points, and the 5 best scores at the end of evening will receive amazing prizes selected by the UR-Glocal ambassadors. Be ready as your hosts, Julia (from France), Gabi (from Brazil) and Tara (from Australia), have planned some fun surprises during the quiz.
