Organised by the college senate the quiz, which focused on 2016, had questions ranging on everything from news and current affairs to celebrity deaths.

The winning team, Top Marx, scored 54 points out of a possible 61 and their team captain was awarded a trophy in recognition of their victory.

The night also included two lives performances from local musicians and a prize charity raffle, with gifts donated by students and members of staff, which raised £40.36.

Senate chairman Ben Greentree said: “The night was a huge success, we had the highest amount of teams participating for several years and everyone got competitive but still had a lot of fun.”
