Wednesday 4 November – The Great British Citizenship Test – 4 years on

The Great British Citizenship Quiz

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

A Manifesto Club event in association with Kensington and Chelsea Arts Service, and with collaboration from St. Pierre & Miquelon.
