We're back, after disruption caused by our hosting provider

2020 Season - Cancelled

It is with regret that we have come to the conclusion that there is no way of running the 2020 seaon under the current circumctances as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.

We will be back in 2021.  In the meantime, stay safe!


We are still a few weeks off the start of the season.  We will keep you posted about how developments in the Coronavirus outbreak will affect the MSQ.

Dave Rainford

All associated with the Mersey Summer Quiz would like to extend their condolences to the family and friends of Dave Rainford who died last week.  Familiar to many as one of the 'Eggheads' on BBC television, Dave was a regular setter for the MSQ.  In addition to writing fine quizzes he always turned down his fee in favour of a charitable donation.  He will be sadly missed by all involved with quizzing across the country.
