Tonight’s the night for the Great Big Politics Pub Quiz at The Black Box in Belfast, part of this year’s fabulous Imagine Festival.
We are delighted to have guest quizmasters in the shape of Steven Agnew MLA, Alex Attwood MLA, Trevor Lunn MLA and John McCallister MLA.
Prizes are courtesy of Stratagem. We have already published the list of the bumper box of politics-themed books up for grabs tonight, so here are the DVD films and box-sets which will also be going to the winning / nearly-winning teams.
The fighting-for-rights Suffragette, featuring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, etc; the complete series 1 and 2 of House of Cards; the complete first season of brilliant Danish political drama television series, Borgen; tense German terror drama The Baader Meinhof Complex; ’71, set in the mean streets of early-Troubles Belfast; the German end-of-war film which inspired a thousand parodies, Downfall; the unparalleled The Godfather trilogy; and the US version of journalism-meets-politics thriller, State of Play.
Look forward to seeing a few of you tonight in The Black Box. Starts 7:45pm. Tickets via Imagine or available at the door.
