It’s safe to say that we don’t know too much about the BIG BANG Pub Quiz, but what we do know sounds pretty intriguing… and hilarious.

Held at Moseley’s One Trick Pony Club, this twist on a traditional pub quiz involves balloons, cash prizes and a dash of forced fun for good measure.

It’s held every Wednesday, which is great news if you like chicken wings, as it goes hand-in-hand with One Trick’s 2-4-1 Wing Wednesday. Follow BIG BANG on Twitter for more info.
