Pinsent Masons swoop Brain of the City Prize at City Giving Day 2018

Lord Mayors City Giving Day Quiz Night - Hosted by Artesian & Synechron

The accolade of Brains of the City goes to Pinsent Masons at City Giving Day 2018


LONDON, England, October 01, 2018 – It was a full house at Pinsent Masons offices as 20 teams assembled for the City Giving Day Quiz Night on Tuesday 25 September. The event was organised by Artesian Solutions, Synechron and Pinsent Masons as part of the City Giving Day series of events.

Nick Boardman from Artesian Solutions devised the quiz and was quiz master on the night. There were rounds covering sport, science, entertainment and London as well as some tricky picture rounds. Some of the more challenging questions included; what element has the chemical symbol W (tungsten), which country has the international car registration letter CH (Switzerland) and when were Oyster Cards first introduced (2003).

After nine hard fought rounds, the winners and “Brains of the City” were the Starfish Enterprise team from Pinsent Masons on 75.5 points with Insert Team Name Here representing Travers Smith runners up on 69 points.

Pinsent Masons will be presented with the prestigious CGD Quiz Night trophy by Lord Mayor of London at a special ceremony later in the year.

The event raised over £2,000 for the Lord Mayor’s Charities with money coming from entry fees, a head/tails challenge and a silent auction.

Commenting on the evening Nick Boardman said “It was a fantastic evening with everyone entering into the spirit of the event. The teams were very competitive and it was very close throughout the night. In the end it came down to the final round with Starfish Enterprise holding off a late challenge from Insert Team Name Here. Special thanks to Pinsent Masons hosting the event who along with Synechron also sponsored refreshments and the prizes.”
