A Rotherhithe boozer is to host a new pub quiz – and the competition might just be a new-born baby.
The ‘Bub Quiz’ idea is the brainchild of mum Alicia Edwards, who found it hard to socialise on pub quizzes as a new parent.
As a result, she set up monthly toddler-and-baby friendly pub quizzes across London, which are now coming to Rotherhithe’s Old Salt Quay.
“Whilst on maternity leave I found it very difficult to find a group where, for even a short time, I could be an adult,” she said. “All the local groups were aimed at entertaining the babies.”
The first Rotherhithe-based instalment of the baby-friendly quizzes takes place on March 31, from 11.30am to 12.30am.
Other sessions take place in Covent Garden, Morden, Pimlico and Wapping. Ms Edwards said she organised the quizzes because there wasn’t anything available for parents that allowed them to socialise along with their new-borns.
“I came up with the idea for Bub Quiz in hope to fill that void,” she said. “This is a vital group for new parents at what can be a very lonely time.”
Bookings can be done via email on email@example.com or via the Hoop or Happity apps, which are platforms to help find parents activities for them and their children nearby.
