November 2009 is the fourth anniversary of the introduction of compulsory Citizenship Tests for immigrants seeking British Citizenship. For the past four years wanna-be citizens have had to prove their suitability as British citizens by sitting a test on British culture, history and politics.
But can a multiple-choice test define what it means to belong in and contribute to a country? Is a good citizen one with a high test score or one who knows that standing on the left on escalators is bad? The Manifesto Club have adapted the official British Citizenship test into a gloriously bizarre pub quiz – come and join in the fun and find out whether you would pass or fail! The debate about true citizenship starts here.
Doors open 7pm. Test begins 8pm.
Testing Centre: The Fat Badger, 310 Portobello Road, W10 5TA
