The Elephant Pub Quiz

October 4 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Elephant and Castle Pub

Newington Causeway

Put your local knowledge to the test and learn surprising things about the area. How much is the most expensive flat in Strata worth? What are Pierogi and where can you buy them here? Why was the Elephant and Castle known as the Piccadilly of the South in the 1920s? Here’s a fact for you about the venue for the quiz. The Elephant and Castle Pub takes it’s name from the many Elephant and Castle pubs before it that gave the neighbourhood it’s name. The current incarnation dates from 1960 and is part of architect Ernö Goldfinger’s mega structure now known as Metro Central Heights. In the 1980s the building faced demolition but fashions change and not only was it convered into flats in the 2002 but it was listed Grade II by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport on 9 July 2013.
