ECP teamed up with the British Chamber of Commerce here in Prague

Marcela Černochová, Managing Director of the BCC, had asked us to organise a pub quiz for their members. Pub quizzes are very popular in the UK and teams regularly compete against each other, answering questions on a wide range of subjects.

Our intrepid Year 6 quiz masters – all over 18! – hosted the evening in the convivial atmosphere of The Pub on Halkova Street. Eight teams competed for the top prize of, what else, packs of great Czech beer! Companies and organisations represented in the quiz included the British Embassy and HSBC. They answered questions on art & literature, entertainment, food & drink, general knowledge, history, science and sport.

Undaunted by such a blue chip audience, our students hosted the whole evening with confidence, charm and wit. It was great to hear all the positive comments from BCC members afterwards who were very impressed by Team ECP’s performance and their ability to put on such a professional event. Well done, everyone, on a brilliant job!

Taking part in the quiz was the new Deputy Ambassador, Lucy Hughes, who only joined the British Embassy in August, but is already feeling at home in Prague. She made a point of coming up to the stage afterwards to speak to the students personally to congratulate them. She was also kind enough to tweet a photo of them all together. Here they are, left to right, Adéla Černá, Sara Thiry, Lucy Hughes, Jakub Müller and Nikita Dyatlov.
