              Reasonably confident of 8, but I've got 16 answers, so a lot of guesses.

                I am confident of 9 and a couple of guesses. Letโ€™s hope I make double figures.
                Iโ€™m going to do this even if it kills me!

                    Oh come on I just had confident guesses๐Ÿ˜Š I really loved history, especially UK, but you really need to know what's going on in the rest of the world at the same time. Then it was too much info and I gave up.

                            Not so good on history compared to musicals I'm afraid, although I enjoy the subject. Looking at the questions, there's only about 5 we're pretty sure we know the answer to.
                            Our working hours are Monday to Friday 8:30am until 5pm
