The London Spelling Bee

Can you spell “gonorrhoea”? Can you use it in a sentence? After selling out all events last year we’re super excited to have some more competitive fun at North London institution Drink Shop and Do!

Having to wake up in this cringe-worthy world of Facebook posts with the word “you’re” constantly spelt incorrectly we decided to launch London’s first ever adults only spelling bee! The hilarious night consists of various rounds of words and their meanings – each more difficult than the last. You can expect anything from Queen’s English and the Oxford Dictionary to profanity and the Urban Dictionary – this is not for the faint-hearted!

It is now so popular after being featured here on ITV News London that it is now one of London’s biggest cult events!

How the London Spelling Bee works:

  • Everyone will get a number.
  • Your number will be called out and you will jump on stage and be given a word to spell.
  • You can jump in and spell it straight away or ask for the meaning, origin or to have it in a hilarious sentence to help you out.
  • If you answer correctly you will go onto the next round.
  • If you answer incorrectly you get to hang out and enjoy the madness.

The winner will receive an awesome bar tab at Proud East on the canal to use during their Japanese pop-up while lazing away in the sun! 

Tickets are at a flat rate whether you would like to compete or just watch and laugh your head off for moral support. Either way it is absolutely HILARIOUS!
