    Hi – we run a club quiz every Friday here in La Manga – your questions look just the thing – so, would appreciate the answers !!

    Hi Nick, please feel free to use the questions, a few of them might be a little dated as they are from 2011 / 12. Hmmm as for the answers, i will have a look and see if I can find them but not sure exactly where they would be, hopefully not just in my head.

    Hi, I run a quiz in El Puerto de Santa María in Cádiz. I was very pleased to find your questions as it gets harder every time to come up with new questions. I would very much appreciate it if you could supply the answers as well.

    Good luck with your quiz. We are struggling at the moment having lost several ex-pats over the last few years and we now have more spanish than english people.

    Best wishes, John.

      Hi John,
      Thanks for your comment and I hope that you can make the best use of them. Unfortunately I wrote all of the questions up a few years back and have moved job, city and unfortunately computers too. I can’t find the documents where I might have had the answers.
      Attached is the only doc that I could find rummaging through my historical emails. Answers for march 16th
