About the event

The Lost Boys invite you to crack their crypt-ic conundrums, probe their paranormal puzzles, and mentally meander through their macabre mysteries in this one-off Halloween quiz night.

Owing to both members of The Lost Boys having to stay in quarantine until early November, Derby City Council’s Derby LIVE team has regretfully taken the decision to cancel the Hallowe’en Session and Quiz Night-mare, which was due to happen this Sat, 31 Oct.

We have been unable to find an alternative compère who could meet the expectations set by The Lost Boys, with their own inimitable style and humour, and feel the evening would not be the same without them.

In addition the safety of our audiences, staff and performers comes first and we are in no doubt that this is the responsible decision. We wish both members of The Lost Boys well and look forward to their version of A Christmas Carol in the River Gardens in December.

Customers who have bought tickets to the Hallowe’en Session and Quiz Night-mare will be contacted direct by the box office and receive a full refund.

Go head to head with other teams following the SpeedQuizzing format, with players given just ten seconds to answer the themed film, music and general knowledge questions over a number of fast-paced rounds, with the quickest person to answer correctly gaining bonus points. Recommended age guidance 18+. 

Expect a fiercely fought, good-humoured contest with the chance to order your own treat this Halloween with our Alfresco dining and bar table service.

We invite you to join us and dress for this eerie event. All ghouls, goblins, witches, and other creepy curiosities welcome.
