Quiz Sheets – Past Issues

Peterborough Lions Quiz is a popular pastime and fundraiser alike. It goes on sale each September and is available through Christmas and into the New Year, with quiz entries accepted until the middle of January.

The Quiz Sheets page on this site updates each year with details of the current quiz, so here we summarise the information relating to recent quiz sheets.

Past issues are still available to buy online while stocks last!

2021 “It’s About Time”

Released 1st September 2021, “It’s About Time” offered 100 questions where all the answers include the word “time”, (or “day”, “hour”, “minute” or “second”).

Our first quiz after the pandemic started to subside, we were able to get it into local pubs, shops and other small businesses that were closed the previous year; even though normality hadn’t yet returned this helped us raise over £4,000 for local causes and to support many other charities and community groups with their own fundraising, selling it on a 50:50 basis.

This quiz was a break from the recent past, with no errata to report! Another area where – despite our best efforts – normality will surely return in due course!

If you missed It’s About Time, it remains available to buy in our online store – along with other past issues – for fun and fundraising purposes. Our next quiz will be out in September 2022, which will also be available through our store where you can pre-order it now if you wish!

2020/21 “Sweet Tooth” Quiz

2020/21 Sweet Tooth Quiz

Released on 1st September 2020, and with an extended sales period due to COVID, our Sweet Tooth Quiz celebrated the joys of confectionery – 100 questions about sweets and chocolates of the past and present.

Due to the pandemic, we had few opportunities to get out and about to sell this one – and many of our partners who sell it for us, or on a 50:50 basis for another cause – were also closed for much or all of the selling period for this quiz. However it quickly became our best seller on the website which went some way to compensating for that!

If you missed this quiz, or any of our other recent ones, they’re still available to buy from our website for entertainment and fundraising purposes.

Errata

  • Question 39: Answer should be 5,3,5’1
  • Question 96: Answer should read 1&1’1

Please note that the Q9/Q43 paradox is not an error!
