Quiz Night
Prof. Robert Marcus

Robert Marcus used to teach at the University in Lecce but then left a few years ago for Rottingdene, England.

He has an abundance of general knowledge and passions, which make him perfect as QuizMaster Extraordinaire.

In fact, Robert in his spare time has been designing and running his most artful, cunning, dastardly and riotously funny quizzes for groups in Lecce, and now in England, for a number of years.

Don't worry, none of us will have to answer questions on our own. We'll be in (virtual) groups and will be most well looked after, enriched and entertained.
