Eight teams of contestants battled it out over a glass of winter Pimms and pizza. Questions covered everything from politics and current affairs, to geography and economics, and in between rounds teams were given a series of challenges, including creating a model of the American election out of tinfoil and guessing the weight of a slice of cake.

Congratulations to the winning team of political researchers: Christopher James, Jessica Mace, and Will Crook. They were awarded a trophy and rosettes—and, more importantly, the title of ‘smartest wonk in Westminster’.

About the 1675 Club

The 1675 Club is the Legatum Institute's society for young leaders and thinkers. The Club provides a venue where the key political, economic and social issues of the day can be debated over a glass of wine. The Club hosts regular events at the Legatum Institute. These are informal occasions where attendees can hear from experts and 1675 Club peers, and participate in the discussion. 1675 Club attendees boast a vast array of knowledge and experience in their own right and so it is hoped to include Club participants as panellists, moderators or discussants at these events.
