The first ever McGuffin event was a Film & TV Quiz held on Saturday February 10 2001 in the function room of Walthamstow's Rose & Crown pub. The Quiz was initially envisaged as a one-off event to provide 'seedcorn' funds for the newly formed Society. However, the response was overwhelming with over 150 people pouring into the function room to take part with a similar number being turned away due to lack of space. This first Quiz was a great success and raised substantial funds to help get the Society off the ground. In response to huge public demand, a decision was taken to make the McGuffins Quiz a regular event. Since April 2001 the Quiz has become a fixture in the main bar of the Rose & Crown and is now a well established local event. Thanks to the generosity of supporters and a substantial donation from the archives of the EMD Cinema, the Quiz has also acquired an enviable reputation for its high quality prizes of rare (and often very valuable) film and TV memorabilia and collectables. The McGuffins Quiz caters for a broad variety of tastes with subjects covering the widest range of film and TV genres. It is designed to be a fun night out both for hardened cinephiles and the casual filmgoer alike. The Film and TV Quiz is written, organised and presented by volunteers with all funds raised donated to the McGuffin Film & Television Society.
