Come to McGahs, in the East Bay, and join fellow Brits. Put on your thinking/drinking caps and bring your best Pub Quiz team! Don’t worry, you don’t have to be British to attend but you will definitely score extra points if you are able to answer some of our very British questions.

Bring your Go Team of 4 and don’t forget to select your team name!

The event is being organized by the British Benevolent Society(BBS). The small registration fee of $15 covers registration and will help the BBS continue with our charity and relief work. Drinks and food are not included in the registration fee.

Consul General Andrew Whittaker

We work closely with the British Consulates in San Francisco and Los Angeles to provide assistance and resources on unique and vulnerable cases.

The BBS has enjoyed a special relationship with the British Consulates-General in San Francisco and Los Angeles for more than a century, each serving British Consul-General has had the pleasure of serving as Honorary President.

Andrew Whittaker assumed his duties as Her Majesty’s Consul General in San Francisco in early August 2016. As Consul General, Andrew is responsible for supporting the UK’s economic profile, foreign policy, and national security priorities in North-western United States (Northern CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY & AK).

We are thrilled to partner with Consul General Whittaker in our growing community of British expats and anglophiles.
