It's Quiztime again, folks! 
OUR ANNUAL NEW YEAR QUIZ 2018/9 
 
All our questions are related in some way to the shows we have seen in 2018. Of course you won't have seen them all but they have all been advertised on our website and you can see a full list of all our 2018 shows if you click to the page HERE
 
Some answers will need a little investigation but you all have Google at your fingertips. Points will be awarded according to the amount of information you give us, and in case there is a tie, we have a final tie-breaker question to push someone to the winning post. 
 
There's an extra incentive - you could win a £20 theatre token 
to spend with us this year. 
 
Switch off the tv, put your feet up and your thinking-cap on, and begin remembering what was a rather special year in London's theatres.We don't expect you to know all the answers but have a go at as many questions as you can, then send us your entry. 
 
Answers must be forwarded to us by the end of this month and we shall announce a winner as soon as possible after that. 
 
Enjoy! 
 
Fredo and Mike
