At Roger Pope & Partners we enjoy social events in and around the Marylebone and Harley Street areas. Our independent opticians have been based in New Cavendish Street for over 30 years where we have been proud to serve not just the local community but also visitors from further afield.

Our sociable team also enjoy attending the various events led by the associations that we are proud members of. The Roger Pope team take part in the Royal Warrant Holders Inter-Association Pub Quiz London edition that took place on Wednesday the 12th of June at the Samuel Pepys Pub in Thameside. Named after the famous diarist, the riverside pub affords wonderful views of the city and the river; all elegantly surrounded by a modern and elegant interior.

The nationwide Pub quiz brought together over 49 teams and 245 participants from across the country with 14 teams and 70 participants in London alone. The Roger Pope team was led by Roger himself and supported by the veritable quiz loving Paul, Ian Pope (Roger’s son) and Stewart Pope (Roger's brother)

Promptly arriving at 6pm the team, whose goal was to make the practice and our clients proud, began their challenge to win the title. Head scratching, met with furrowed brows and much whispering, punctuated by many ums and ahhs, took place as the practice’s finest worked together to take the crown. The result? Our Marylebone practice taking the title for London from some very respectable competition.

Prizes were awarded for the following positions:

  • Winning Team: Mr Selfridge Afternoon tea for 2 per player
  • 2nd Place: A bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label per player
  • 3rd Place: DR Harris Goody Bag per player

Of course, who will the two team members be who enjoy the afternoon tea? A potential trivia round within the practice may settle this but for now we are proud to bask in our glory as quiz champions. What's more, the event was in conjunction with a charity fund with some fantastic raffle prizes that also highlighted the fabulous work the association undertakes. Those who supported the event through the donation of prizes or in their attendance managed to raise nearly £4,000 for the Charity Fund – a brilliant achievement that has exceeded last year's total raised of £3,355.25!

On behalf of all of the practice we would like to thank the Association for all of the hard work and organisation that made the event so enjoyable for all that attended.
