Since May last year, we’ve been releasing Local Quizness every month to help test your knowledge of the previous month’s news.
This month, instead of looking back at December’s stories, we’ve created The Quiz of the Year 2020. Twice the size of the monthly quizzes, the jumbo quiz explores the biggest local marketing stories to come out of 2020, so you can be certain you have all the knowledge needed to be successful in 2021.
Test your memory in the quiz below, and as always, you can share your score on Twitter using #LocalQuizness. We’ve also compiled a list of every story covered in the quiz so that you can catch up on any news you may have missed.
